it is extreamly helpful as both these works have been out of print for many years, and are only available due to the wonderful work of music collectors accross the world, some of which are nice enough to scan copies and attach them to the internet!

I can sight read but MUCH prefer to hear a piece and then play it.  Wish they had done that when I was learning as a kid...

I was taught to hear and then play (I learnt piano by the Suzuki method when I was young) but recently I've gotten good at sight reading. It's fun.

so you are my diametric opposite Smiley

I'm sure both methods work well - but they depend on the person learning as to which is better, just the same as learning to dance...

What does everybody think of Pictures At an Exhibition?  I've heard the Mussorsky piano arrangement.  I've got a copy of the Cleveland Symphany performing the Ravel orchestral arrangment, and I once heard a performance of an orchestral arrangement by someone else (can't remember who).  And then I've also got the infamous Emerson, Lake & Palmer version.   Roll Eyes

LOVE Pictures at an Exhibition! I'm curious to hear a solo piano version of it (I know that is what it originally was)

I still can't decide if I like the infamous ELP version of it or not.

Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto #2, especially the classic recording of Artur Rubinstein with the Chicago Symphony

Brahms - Piano Concerto #2, especially the classic recording of Van Cliburn with the Chicago Symphony

Stravinsky - The Rite  of Spring

Stravinsky - The Firebird

Stravinsky - Ebony Concerto, Igor experimenting with jazz harmony

Holst - The Planets, especially the Mars, Jupiter and Neptune segments, the Neptune segment is just so mysterious and eerie.

Lygeti - Lux Aeterna and Atmospheres (used in the stargate scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey)

Ravel: Daphne and Chloe', especially a classic recording by The Boston Symphony with Charles Munch conducting

fantastic list - and if I wasn't obsessed with violin solo/concerto/sonatas at the moment I would work through it!

I still can't decide if I like the infamous ELP version of it or not.

Actually, I like it quite a bit, but it is its own thing... if you want a performance of Pictures an an Exhibition that's "true" to the composition, this is not it. 

A few things that I've been listening to on my computer, in the form of crude General MIDI files that I downloaded from various places:

Debussy -- Clair de Lune

Debussy -- Arabesque No. 1 in E

Greig -- "Anitra's Dance" from Peer Gynt (I also have this on CD, from the "Contact" soundtrack)

Beethoven -- Symphony No. 3 (Eroica), 2nd movement
