Give this a listen NOW if you've never heard it. All 5 parts are on YouTube. Part 3 IBM 1402 Card Real Punch is just wonderful. Reminds me of something from a movie but I can't pinpoint it.

Absolutely stunning. Been going through a few different Jóhann Jóhannsson albums today, this is new to me and it's just wonderful.
Discovered Estonian composer Arvo Pärt this week through Spotify, and must have listened to this piece 10 times since then. It's mind-blowing; I've loved classical music all my life and this is totally at the top of what I like.

I'm falling in love with Arvo Pärt....
I listened to a variety of 'classical' types of music over the years. I came to realize that the one that I always came back to was Mozart, so that is all I listen to. And there is a lot to hear.

Try some of this Mozart and I promise it will make your ears happy.
Piano Concertos 17-27
Violin Concertos 1-5 (especially the slow movements, which are breathtakingly beautiful)
Any concertos are good, clarinet, basson, flute, etc.
A Little Night Music
Piano Sonata #8
Mass in C (the final movements rock harder than anything you have ever heard)
Don Giovanni.....(melodies are incredible - forget the story and all that, just listen to the melodies)
It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van....
