The feeling I got after drawing my bow across the strings of my violin in the beautiful Opera House of Versailles as the last note echoed through the hall had tears running down my cheeks.

The Righteous Brothers: Unchained Melody. There are two main reasons why this is my pick. My father used to listen to music from the 40s, 50s and 60s while I was growing up.

Cristina Zacharias' 'My Musik'

The first early music CD I ever bought is a classic — the Bach Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin performed by Sigiswald Kuijken. I listened to this recording a lot as a young student, and it played a huge role in shaping how I hear and understand this amazing music that is the backbone of the violin repertoire. It also sparked my interest in learning more about period performance and historical instruments.

Francine Labelle's 'My Musik'

Oh dear … where do I begin? There’s so much out there that I like! I love opera (Verdi, Puccini, even Rossini), renaissance and baroque music, jazz (Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Tormé, Dinah Washington, Peggy Lee), Mahler, organ music, a good dose of new music, Maria Callas, Requiems in general, Poulenc, world music (especially African and Arabic music), pretty much anything by Tafelmusik, and French singers Aznavour, Montand, Brassens, and arrrgghhh … Jacques Brel.
