The other afternoon, I downloaded and sampled Starbucks' summer mix and that inspired me to create my own. After all, everyone needs something to balance out their Death Cab and Stars tracks.
- lost in thought and nostalgia on a late night- Scarlatti's Piano Sonata in D Minor, L.108, K.213. This version played by Daniil Tirfonov during the 2011 Rubinstein Competition was especially poignant.
- on your way to the party you've been looking forward to all week- Ravel's Quartet in F-II. Assez vif, très rythmé, played by the Hagen Quartet
- counting the clouds on a lazy afternoon- Schumann's Kinderszenen, Op.15, played by Eric Zuber during this year's Rubinstein Competition
- getting ready for a hot date- Carmen Fantasy for two pianos, in a daring new arrangement by Andersen and Roe
- when you're in a new york state of mind- Bernstein's West Side Story Suite, played by Joshua Bell
