Someone recently asked me what my favorite piece of classical music is.
Although I have a varied taste in this genre, on top of everything else that I listen to, there are two that have a special place in my heart, and that stand out.
The second will have to be a live performance I watched on Television. It was this astonishing piece called “Velesslavista” on Channel 4‘s, The World’s Greatest Musical Prodigies and featured Zhang Xiao Ming, Michael Province, Simone Preston, Nathan Chan, the Northern Sinfonia and Alexander Prior who had put it all together and conducted it.
