Elia Cmiral's "The John Galt Theme" and Modest Mussorgsky's "The Grand Gate of Kiev"
I've listened to this a few times. My personal response is that I waiver between liking it and tolerating it. I have heard better, but I've also heard worse. At first I was really enjoying it, but the more I listened the less impressed I was.
I would have been more excited if the composer/music selector had used Modest Mussorgsky's "The Grand Gate of Kiev" which I believe was one of Rand's favorite pieces of music (although I could be wrong about that--I'm simply remembering something said on one of Leonard Peikoff's podcasts.) To me, it seems more in line with the character of John Galt.
That piece of music is here...
