"On a Burnley fans website!! Am I seeing things??"
I think you would be surprised by the number of Claret ST holders, who are actively involved in the classical music scene. This includes at least 6 church organists that I know of, a significant number of local music teachers,and many who sing in choirs or with the local operatic and dramatic societies, brass-banders etc.
Music and sport have always been closely linked. Local opera star Sean Ruane, who sang regularly a the Ashes now runs an organisation which involves young people in music and sport.
As for a music recommendation - I'll have to give it some thought.
Any orchestral extract by Wagner is worth exploring - especially if you prefer hearing the melodies without the voices.
The prelude to Lohengrin and overture to Tannhauser are very "approachable". (Sorry don't know how to make links)

Coincidentally "Old Colner", the amazingly talented Nicola is playing at the Colne Muni on Sunday Sept 21st with Camerata.
If anyone else is thinking of going, you need to be quick, it's already virtually sold out

Two for those who want to explore a wider repertoire
Richard Strauss: the epic Alpine Symphony, (basically film music without the film!), and
his Four Last Songs (in the version by Jessye Norman)
If you don't know them, give them a go. It's Strauss's 150th Anniversary this year.

Thanks for that I didn't realise my home town had such good taste in classical music. Do go if you can.
I see her in Glasgow regularly and she always sells out. She performed at the Games Opening and several flashmobs across the city culminating in a marathon classics day July 26 where she played three different concerts in the same Royal Concert Hall venue with four different orchestras. The middle one had 160 musicians on stage.
Amazing.

Not my scene at all really but Peter and the Wolf (by Sergei Prokofiev??) stays with me from hearing it in the 60s as a child - possibly on Family Favourites?

Family Favourites

Was that with Uncle Mac ? Or was that Childrens favourites, with such favourites as Sparky the Piano ?

Showing my age now :D

"Boccherini's La Musica Notturne Della Strade di Madrid (seen on Master and Commander - Crowe and Bettany duet)"

I love this and was the piece I thought of when seeing the title... Seen as its already been mentioned though. I'll post this song by Waitress for the Bees. Whom I had the pleasure of seeing recently and is based on the aboved classical piece. - view external link (www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BNwuFqOlIg)
