classical music = calm

ok, much as it is underrated by the youth of todays society, classical music possibly surpasses every other form of creative expression for sheer nebulous, ecstatic, beauty. especially dame kiri te kanawa's performance of o mio babbino caro. in fact, puccini composition in general, but that song particularly. ooh, and the entirity of madam butterfly.

theres a classic for every occasion. youve got youre four impromptues for those light airy sorta moods, or rachmanonov for anger. or satie just cos. and opera, well, what more needs to be said. it just gives you this wonderful floaty feeling of wieghtlessness. or like youre swimming through an ocean of jelly blue jelly.

i will stop boring you all eventually with my transports of delight in something many of you consider irelenvant, or dont consider at all, but its unearthy beauty inspired me to take up pen and describe. it being easier to reach the computer from my place on the couch, i promptly gave up the pen and turned instead to the keyboard.

a million wonders of operatic delight to you all

Rach 2 is potentially the most beautiful piano music you will ever hear. I also recommend mvt II of Brahms' 4th symph, mahler 1 (all mvts) brahms tragic overture, the american quartet and mvt II or Dvoraks new world symph. gotta love cor anglais. Oh and of course, the quintessential Beethoven and Tchaik.
