    Lately I've been listening to Wanda Landowska, who was one of J.S. Bach's first great champions after the invention of the microphone. When combined with her gigantic, custom harpsichord, the poor recording quality often makes it sound like the noisier works I listen to. I don't listen to much classical music, but Bach has always been very dear to me.

    I also recently tracked down a copy of Satsuki Shibano's recordings of Erik Satie. It was the last album to be put out in the "Wave Notation" series, which was a short-lived but remarkable string of early Japanese ambient works on Satoshi Ashikawa's Sound Process label.

    For a while I've been meaning to find the Schubert piece I heard in a movie one time that was very moving to me. I think I have narrowed it down to one of these, but have not definitively found it yet.

        The movie was Au hasard Balthasar. I did remember it, but wanted to see if I would recognize the piece if I heard it again. The snippet in question was the Andantino from D. 959 in A major....

        The movie was Au hasard Balthasar. I did remember it, but wanted to see if I would recognize the piece if I heard it again. The snippet in question was the Andantino from D. 959 in A major. Listening to the CD yesterday, I let it go by without ever thinking about it. That goes to show how perceptive of a listener I am to classical music!

        And if you can't remember offhand, @cardigan, IMDB actually has a pretty big list of Schubert soundtrack credits you could peruse. You might be able to spot it in there.
