Listening repeatedly to Symphony # !2 by Shostakovich.



It was one of the two symphonies dedicated by the composer to the Russian Revolution.

What music are you currently listening to when you play wargames, either face to face or solo ?

Summoning is an Austrian black metal band based in Vienna. Since their formation in 1993 they have released seven albums and two EPs.
The band's music is deeply influenced by the literature of J. R. R. Tolkien and middle earth mythology, in particular the Lord of the Rings. Most of the band's lyrics are derived from Tolkien's own works.

The soundtrack for the computer wargame Unity of Command is about as perfect as you can get for operational level warfare.

Music and dialogue, perfect for war at sea (or should I say, War at Sea).

The original Conan the Barbarian soundtrack! Crush your opponents, drive them before you, and hear the lamentations of the Eurogamers!

I like to play selections from these three things I played in high school orchestra/band. Sets the mood for me.

I haven't been doing a lot of wargaming, but I have been listening to a lot of Mussorgsky while reading rulebooks due to these threads. Thanks, gents.

The original version was for piano only.

I've found both arrangements - and different interpretations of those arrangements - suiting some moods better than others. Damned if I can choose between them, though.
