Last night's intense storm here in AZ reminded me of a fine work that my high school marching band played when I was the percussion section leader - we used to think we were such badasses in our aussie hats and mirrored sun-glasses.... but I digress.
Modest Mussorgsky's Night On Bald Mountain, as played by the Tehran Symphony Orchestra. Each time I listen to this, certain crescendos still spend shivers down my spine - having practiced it ad nauseam almost 30 years ago.
