Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Riccardo Muti- Beethoven's 9th
Note: I love the 9th and have listened to many versions. This stands as one of my favorite recordings. I can't believe Chicago Symphony Orchestra put this up on YouTube, making it free for anyone to listen to. Thanks CSO!
Staff Pick (Rose Smith):
Vremya & Steklo - "Troll"
Note: This song was number one in December in Ukraine, Belarus, and parts of Russia and Latvia. The video is just amazing, and the song itself warrants more than just one listen.
