Classical Music for Non-Classical Music Lovers

Until I figure out how to acquire Last FM or Pandora to appear on this site I'd like to direct your attention to Gabriela Montero, a Venezuelan piano virtuoso who re-interprets all kinds/ styles of classical music and is Very listenable! I picked up her CD yesterday and although I am not a big classical fan, I really like her stuff! Lively,Quick &Deft, in both technique & feel.She is on MySpace, YouTube and other places a young musician would post to so you can check her out and even download a few of her performances for free.

My next question I'd like to put out there is: Have you found an artist, group or style of music that you found you liked but don't normally listen to? I'm an eclectic listener of everything from Dance Trance/Electronic through Rock, Pop, Folk & Non Folk (Regina Specktor) and now some classical! Who'd a Thunk it?

The most unlikely add to my music drawer was Iz. Israel Kamakawiwo 'ole is an enormous Hawaiian singer and uke player. He's FABULOUS!
