    Tosca's E Lucevan le Stelle, Puccini's Nessum Dorma and the like. Wondering why the Tosca (from iTunes) is weirdly scratchy.

    I like Nessum Dorma enough that I have versions of it by diff singers, which I listen to on one playlist.

    I have the version on DVD by the Berlin Phil conducted by Seiji Osawa. The soprano on this recording is Kathleen Battle. What a voice she has.

    theres too many of Mozart's works i like to mention them all but "A little night music" has always got me.....his Requiem is lovely too but poignant as he died before it was finished.

    Mozart was incredible. Considering the short time he had, he pumped out an amazing amount of great music. I have an interesting album by Sky playing Mozart. I'll have to dig it out and rip it. Thanks for the reminder.

    The film Amadeus (with Tom Hulce) is just amazing, one of my all time favourites.

    I have Litztomania, mainly because Rick Wakeman is in it. That's very watchable.

    If we are talking great films then, as soon as Wimbledon finishes i'm watching Quadrophenia, not everyones taste but i love it!

    Classical music is great, we have so many great movements it would take an age to type them all, but one of my favourites is Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov, the way the music changes to reflect different moods is quite moving.

    Mozart is a firm favourite with most people, he was a rock god of gargantuan proportions!
