His Music Picks
 ''It is kind of an odd choice, depressing music, especially this symphony is called 'tragic'. But the reason why I listen to it is that we were rehearsing and recording that during the 911 catastrophe. It was an intense time for the world and I remember they shut down San Francisco and the bridges. In a way, it reminded me of the situation now.'' - David Herbert

Symphony No. 6 in A minor: III. Andante moderato - San Francisco Symphony

SongList Recommendation: Schubert
''Schubert is my favourite composer. And I have been listening to Richter’s and Sokolov's piano playing.'' - David Herbert

Schubert: Impromptu 1 Op. 90 (D.899) - Grigory Sokolov

Schubert: Piano sonata (D.960) - Sviatoslav Richter
