I hope you like the list.
I chose Spiegel im Spiegel because I used to play it for my son when he wouldn’t sleep at night, the piano plays like stars coming out in the night sky and that violin is like an old man’s voice telling you it’s all going to be alright.
Billy Joel’s lullaby is like that too.
Sheku Kanneh-Mason: Komm Sußer Tod
Sheku Kanneh-Mason played the Komm Sußer Tod as his encore when he performed with us (at the Mid-Season Gala) and it was one of those moments of somebody getting close to what heaven must be like.
Beethoven: String Quartet in A Minor & Audrey Hepburn: Moon River
And then there’s the Beethoven hymn from one of his last ever pieces, the string quartet in A minor, where you can’t help but think that he’s saying thank you to god for having been given a pen and the ability to write music.
And Audrey Hepburn, whose performance of Moon River almost didn't make it into the film 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' - this perfectly captures the timelessness and power of music.
