Clarinet Concerto In A Major – Mozart
The most ravishing music on earth. Makes me think of decades of not quite learning to play the clarinet.

The Pearl Fishers’ Duet – Bizet, Sung By Jussi Bjorling And Robert Merrill
My father and grandfather used to sing it together at the piano.

I’d Be Surprisingly Good For You From Evita

Hours spent listening to a teenage son practising for the part of Nicely Nicely Johnson. Just one boat-rocking line and I’m back there.
