Tomita - Snowflakes Are Dancing, 1974

I'm posting this jewel in celebration of the first real snowfall we have had this year in Brooklyn. 
Considered an early example of proto-synthesizer-pop, Snowflakes are Dancing is Isao Tomita's fantastical renditions of Debussy on a Moog synthesizer. It's a masterpiece. For a bunch of interesting facts like all the Grammy awards this record won and how influential it is, check out the Wikipedia article.

I wouldn't recommend this for casual listening. Put on some headphones, close your eyes, and let Tomita take you on a journey to whatever planet he's from. So happy to share this with all of you.
