Death's triumphant ride over the battlefield, chillingly performed by Dmitri Hvorostovsky.
[Hallowe'en hive call: who is the pianist in this video? He is awesome, but unnamed in the video's description.] Update: A huge thanks goes to Pamela for the positive ID on the pianist: he is none other than Ivari Ilja, a long-time collaborator with Hvorostovsky and head of the piano department at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.
