    start to explore them.

    Whenever you want to induce yourself some peace of mind, what works do
    you frequently listen to? For me, these are the ones :

    - The Lark Ascending - among many performances I have, I prefer the
    one by Hugh Bean and London Symphony (?) under Boult on EMI

    - Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis - the performance by Sinfonia
    of London under Barbirolli on EMI GROC is my most favorite

    - Works by Arvo Part on an EMI Music for Pleasure CD by Tasmin Little
    with Bournemouth Sinfonetta under Studt - Frates, Spigel im Sigle, a
    work dedicated to Benjamin Britten.

    - The fisrt movement of Mahler's Symphony no.9 by Berlin Philharmonic
    under Barbirolli on EMI GROC. I listened to this for the fisrt time
    4-5 years ago on a cool evening with light rain and I was deeply
    impressed at once.

    - The first movement of Glazunov's Symphony no.4 by Royal Philharmonic
    under Yondani Butt on ASV. I hope that this work would be recorded
    more than it has been.

    - Respighi's Ancient Airs and Dances Suite 3 for strings. I like the performance by ASMF under Marriner on Philips (coupled with other
    works, not suite 1 and 2). The one by Marriner with LA Chamber on EMI
    does not work out well for me becaue it sounds too rush. Nor does the
    one by Lopez-Cobos on Telarc (but its suite 1 and 2 are great for

    - Mozart's Clarinet Quintet. I like many recordings. The entire work
    invokes an image of a pleasant stroll in a lush garden.

    How about yours?

    Jazz. Nothing but jazz.
    Quiet music annoys.
