You are right.

She has set the standards so high for this Edgar concerto, it would be a tough task for anyone other cellist playing this concerto.

This is probably the best known piece of classical music in Sweden, as it has been the signature melody for the Swedish sportsradio since the early 60´s.

Q. What's the name of the famous piece by one of the major composers (Beethoven maybe?) that was made into a VOCAL song in the early 20th century. I can never remember the exact title. I thought it was "Communique" or "Martinique" but that's not right (I researched). If this isn't clear: they took a famous classic piece and wrote lyrics for it, creating a song [Like what was done to "Ode To Joy" by the Catholic church]. I think it might've been a hit in the 40's.

Thanks.

Pathetique? It's a name often given to Beethoven's eighth piano sonata.

Thanks for trying. My bad, it wasn't Beethoven (turned out to be Dvorak) after some Googling.

The complete Rachmaninov piano concerto #3 by the legendary Martha Argerich in 1982. For years bootlegs of this performance did the rounds among Argerich fans until in 1995 it finally got an official release on CD. It's one of - in fact probably THE highest rated performance of this piece in history.

I love this one. It always brings a smile. Particularly from about 1:37.

Also, there's a really fast one I like that's pretty well-known, but I don't know the name. The violinists played it on "Titanic" while it sank. I think maybe when they first started playing but could be wrong.
