Portsmouth Sinfonia's rendition of "Also Sprach Zarathustra".
"This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.

Beautiful song however I prefer it in a slower tempo.

I'm trying to enjoy this one, I've learnt to enjoy the beginning part of it. Why I listened to this? Because somebody I love, or loved, enjoyed this very much. And it makes me think of him. However I'm trying to experience the song raw, and what its trying to convey. So far it seems very erratic and anguished.
Probably how he felt... So it expressed his mood perfectly. An outlet for him perhaps. Hm.

That piece is a major classic.

It is a classic but not classical. This one would appeal to the majority of feeling folks. I would be surprised that it does not appeal to at least some thinkers as well.
