St. Paul, Minn. — Jim Earley is a business coach. He's successful because he knows how to ask his clients good questions. And he knows how to listen. According to one client, "Jim pours out wisdom. He's insightful and gets to the heart of the matter."

While Jim Earley's experience with classical music isn't as all-encompassing as he would like, his playlist is that of a good (and wise) listener.

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 (movement 3, excerpt) with Lorin Maazel conducting the Cleveland Orchestra. Sony 44786

Mozart: Symphony No. 41 (movement 1, excerpt) with James Levine conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. RCA 4413

Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 (movement 3) with Osmo Vanska conducting the Minnesota Orchestra. Bis 1746

Holst: The Planets "Jupiter, the Bringer of Jolity" with Herbert von Karajan conducting the Berlin Philharmonic. DG 400 028

Next week: Tim Sheie is a retired educator, a graphic artist and singer. His playlist is as eclectic as his professional life.
