Prelude a l’apres midi d’un faune (Afternoon of a Faune) – Claude Debussy

Performed by the Münchner Philharmonic (Münchner Philarmoniker, May 1994.)

Anthony Burgess – best known for writing A Clockwork Orange – from his wikipedia page:

As a young child he did not care about music, until he heard on his home-built radio “a quite incredible flute solo,” which he characterized as “sinuous, exotic, erotic,” and became spellbound. Eight minutes later the announcer told him he had been listening to Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune by Claude Debussy. He referred to this as a “psychedelic moment … a recognition of verbally inexpressible spiritual realities.”
