Music for Egon Schiele

This 1996 album by Rachel’s forms a nexus into the worlds of music, art, and drama.  I don’t normally listen to a lot of all-instrumental albums, but this one is so lovely and relaxing and…perfect. It’s the kind of music that conjures up an eerie form of nostalgia for that which is only half-remembered. As Don Draper once astutely put it, in one of his most stunning pitches ever, “It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone.” I am starting to think there might be a Mad Men quote for all occasions.

Recommended listening for a snowy day (or sunny, or whatever.)
