A la recherche du temps perdu soundtrack

Via the 2013: The Year of Reading Proust group at Goodreads, this Spotify playlist sets the Proustian mood. The songs are taken from an article by music critic Alex Ross. For the paintings referenced in the Lost Time series, Paintings in Proust, edited by Eric Karpeles, seems to be the art book museum to visit.


  1. Spotify has yet to become available in Ireland - I was looking forward to listening to this, having just added The Smiths' Reel Around the Fountain to my currently gestating post on The Captive. Not that I'm suggesting that Proust was influenced by The Smiths...

  2. The same in my country. I just thought to share the link. I hope someone recreates the playlist in Youtube.
