The Classical music thread

Just watched a moving documentary about an extraordinary woman, which not only had a beautiful score, but also a good dose of Rachmaninov's 2nd as per the subject's own flamboyant tastes. I was suchhhh a sucker for this concerto during my teens, long before I became aware of any associations with Brief Encounter or the song All By Myself. To me, the 2nd always brings to mind Phantom of the Opera, which I was obsessed with around the same age. Haven't listened to it for flipping yonks - makes me feel all impassioned and sentimental again, swoon!
