Here are the links for all my Classical Pieces of the Week!

Introduction (this is also in my first one, Vltava):
I've had a love for classical music ever since I started taking music history lessons. I feel like classical music is not appreciated enough in the now modern world, which is more dominated by pop, rap, etc. Now don't get me wrong, I love listening to all kinds of "modern" music, but I feel like classical music is so underrated. A lot of people think of classical music as slow, boring, and with absolutely no excitement. But if you look further and deeper into the music, it's so much more than a different bunch of notes played in some kind of rhythm. The piece can be calm and serene, or strong and dramatic. That's the thing, one of the reasons that makes classical music so amazing is the diversity. From the middle-ages, to classical era, to the romantic era, and so on. Another thing is the effort. The effort that these composers put into their pieces is undeniably great. These pieces are like finely crafted works of art. Masterpieces.

I hope that these posts will inspire you to go discover the world of classical music, because trust me, you don't know what you're missing on. :)

  1. I totally agree with you classical music is overlooked, but it is wonderful, beautiful music :D

  2. I absolutely love Gymnopédie No.1! It's such a beautifully-haunting piece! It's used as the backing track for one of my favourite films/documentaries (Man On Wire) and perfectly suits this scenes where he is tightrope-walking between the twin towers. :)

    1. Oh, it does seem like a great match! And it is such a beautiful piece :)
