Playlist "80"

My brain made the connection between two opus 80s in F minor: the Prokofiev Violin Sonata and the Mendelssohn Quartet. Naturally I would collect other 80s into a playlist:

  • Bach, Cantata 80 "Ein feste Burg"
  • Prokofiev, Violin Sonata, Op. 80
  • Mendelssohn, String Quartet, Op. 80
  • Beethoven, Choral Fantasy, Op. 80
  • Britten, 2nd Cello Suite, Op. 80
  • Brahms, Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80
  • Haydn, Symphony #80 in D minor
  • Faure, Pelleas & Melisande, Op. 80
  • Myaskovsky, Divertissement for small orchestra, Op. 80
  • Sibelius, Sonatina for violin & piano, Op. 80

    That will keep me occupied for a while. I was surprised how many familiar pieces cropped up in the Bs.

    PS - if you don't know it, the Prokofiev is a very good thing.
