I've heard Bach Busoni Chaconne in D minor on piano before but never by Arthur Rubinstein. Wow! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKYyiD8ypCo

Another wow! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sd0ocrAJMQA just amazing! I didn't know Busoni also arranged it for 2 guitars. Though this was brilliantly played by both, I prefer the solo version and would love to hear either one play it.

My favorite composer, chopin on guitar:

Jerzy Koenig's transcriptions are so good, he makes them sound like they were actually written for guitar which is the very essence of a quality transcription. Also, the fast parts are very clean, I really like his playing. I wonder how hard these pieces are to play?

Recently I've developed an obsession for listening to Sor's Op 59 Fantaisie Elagiaque. Whereas some late Sor works might seem a bit sardonic, if not frankly cynical ("Mes Ennuis", "Est-ce bien, ça?"), this feels quite heartfelt and grief-stricken.
It's inspired me to have a go playing it-but starting from the reprise of the funeral march on the last page!

Today I've been listening to several albums of the legendary Jamaican band Skatalites. The album I'm listening now is "On The Right Track". I've been a fan of ska and reggae music since childhood.

A great variety of tastes in music.
I would like to hear how many people listen to these.

This is my current favorite.
