What I Listened To in 2013: Part 2: Jazz and Classical

Check out Part 1 for a sampler of some of my favourite pop, rock and metal that I listened to in 2013.

I’ve never been a great jazz fan, but I did start to listen to and appreciate jazz a little more. Here are a couple of my favourites by Miles Davis, both in live performances:

Miles Davis Group, Time After Time

Miles Davis Quintet, Miles Runs The Voodoo Down

It’s hard to find good classical clips on YouTube, but here’s a sample of some of the classical music I’ve enjoyed over the past year:

Richard Strauss, Four Last Songs, No. 4: Im Abendrot (Renee Fleming)

Dmitri Shostakovich, String Quartet No. 8 (Borodin Quartet)

Bela Bartok, String Quartet No. 3 (Kontras Quartet)

Olivier Messiaen, Turangalila-Symphony (Movement 1, annotated)
