Dream Weapons present: ANTIQUES & COLLECTABLES C60

As always I followed my muse and this time I was led to compile an(other) exquisite Baroque/Classical era mix for you. One hour of immersive instrumental works with densely woven textures made of harpsichord, viola da gamba, theorbo, glass harmonica(!), violins et cetera. I tend to associate these olden soundscapes with dusty cobwebs, old master paintings, haunted castles and lamenting ghosts - which probably explains the old school doom metal cover art -Moahaha

-Classical playlists will always be a bit of a mess, as there’s so much info/text for each track - so I got to leave something out. But you can always google your way to further info.

1 Jean-Baptiste Lully / Harmonia - Gavotte in B-minor
2 Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach / Mahan Esfahani - Sonata in Bb, H32 - 2 Andante
3 Johann Gottlieb Naumann / Bruno Hoffmann, Gustav Scheck, Emil Seiler & August Wenzinger - Andante & Grazioso in C Major: (Tempo di Menuetto) II

This mix is very much related to Pérolas Barrocas from 2016 (you finally got your wish, Liquid Store).


  1. I love baroque music as much as doom metal! Thank you very much for beautiful compilation !

    1. That makes two of us DOOMSTERJOHN - glad to hear you enjoyed it!

  2. Thank you, very nice. This is a place where I appreciate a little guidance.

    1. Thanks Psychfan. I've noticed most people/friends finds this old "classical" music-thing largely impenetrable, and either ends up with a handful of the usual suspects - or nothing at all. I just try and go about it the same way as I would compiling a jazz or whatever-mix, really... collecting stand out (in one way or another) gems that compliment each other - and take it from there:)

  3. NICE!!! luvin' it....

  4. No day is complete without some baroque to sooth the mind. Cheers!
