9. Bach:Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor BWV 1052: I Allegro, Mikhail Petukhov
10. Hey Jude, Jon Simon
The best of all is discovering other versions of Piazzolla’s “Libertango”. There’s one string ensemble rendition of Libertango with cello on the lead that I found in dogpile. So far, I like Al Di Meola’s World Sinfonía III: The Grande Passion and Yo-Yo Ma’s Soul of Tango – The Music of Astor Piazzolla versions best. But I didn’t find them in Sonific so….
I was looking for the 12 Cellists of The Berlin Philharmonic‘s “The Beatles in Classics”, but Sonific doesn’t have it. Too bad, the Sting Tribute Ensemble to The Beatles doesn’t include “Hey Jude”, so I picked Jon Simon’s.
And the rests, Mozart concertos, Bach, and Ravel pieces, are some of my faves. I was looking for Jacques Loussier Trio’s version of Mozart concertos though, but found none. Not that I’m complaining. The “original” version is forever divine.
Once again, enjoy!
