Any new years resolutions? Spotify classical music

Last playlist of 2015…
From the warm winter in the Netherlands I wish you a happy 2016!
Any resolutions? Well, hope to hear some kickass classical stuff again next year,
and hope to find the time to share the discoveries with you all :-D

Resolutions! When I think of that word, I think of the “Sonate beurocratique” by Eric Satie, where the last chords never seem to dissolve. Or the mysterious “three pieces in the form of a pear”, one of the most advanced four hand music Satie ever composed. Strange resolutions there, and I always “see” many stories being told in that music.
Short playlist! Tribute to Aldo Ciccolini, who introduced me to this music, and, after a long and musical life, died in 2015. Was lucky to see him perform life, once. 

Greetings, and see you next year!
