Earworm of the day: Bruch’s Adagio

YouTube Preview ImageCan classical music provide earworms? For me, it can. I end up humming or whistling the melody for days, which can be awkward, as there’s usually a much larger range of tones to be covered, and the melodies tend to be much more complicated than those of the average pop song.

Anyway, during a recent train journey I listened to Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto in g-minor, and the second movement, the Adagio, has stayed with me. The version I have on CD is with Yehudi Menuhin and it’s hauntingly beautiful, but the version with Joshua Bell that I found on YouTube is excellent, too.

Do you have classical earworms?

    Absolutely. No question. Mozart’s Requiem, or Mass in C minor usually do the trick. When I first got into Rachmaninoff, the Rach 3 was in my head all the time.

    Pachelbel’s Canon for sure.
