Chess Related Music
Warning: this is not about goooood music.
It just has to mention chess in some way.
Let's start with a masterpiece, it will make everything clear...
"Schach durch die Dame im Spiel" [Check through the Queen] by Roland Kaiser, a king of the "schlager", those german hits.
I guess I should mention "Chess", the musical, unfortunately I never watched it.
And then there is "One night in Bangkok" by Murray Head:
Recently (2014), an opera about Mikhail Tal has been created at the opera Riga, the hometown of that genius:
"Mikhail and Mikhail play chess" by Kristaps Petersons.
And we can't forget that Philidor, yes the guy who said that "pawns are the soul of chess", that he was a great musician too and a composer.
I am sure that I'll find more examples but feel free to contribute!
