The Library of Congress has just added twenty-five recordings to the National Recording Registry.

These include Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto #1 performed by Van Cliburn, A Program of Song featuring Leontyne Price, and the opera Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass.

Also included were Simon and Garfunkel’s Sounds of Silence, and Chubby Checkers’ The Twist. How eclectic!
