Before I go on about this guy, and music and his genius, take a moment to listen to this soft piece, just listen to the first minute or so if you like, you can always come back to it.
Go on, you’ll like it, I promise.
Ok, so we will do a quick tour of some of the best romantic music ever made, they all just happen to be composed by Chopin.
Before we sample our next succulent music morsel, I would like to just make a few comments. You know, get the whole blog thing out of the way.
I have seen that many people, particularly those approaching their mid-life or older, have an inability to enjoy new music, or unheard music, and do not enjoy the music for its inherent glory, but rather enjoy a feeling of nostalgia, as the music transports them to a memory or time in the past.
I stress that Chopin was a master musician of all forms but his blessing was romantic music. Listen to the first two minutes of this piece and, since most of you will never have even heard of Chopin, let alone this piece, and will be probably hearing for the first time you can experience what I mean when I say appreciation for the music itself and not just for the nostalgia associated with a favourite song or pop piece.
Think quietly about the first time you had your heart broken, take you self to the moment it happened, now press play.
Here is one you are probably familiar with.
This is undenyably one of the most beautiful pieces ever composed.
I will be updating the post soon with some more of his works. recommendation
