What’s in a piece of music?

And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares that infest the day
Shall fold their tents like the Arabs
And as silently steal away.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Day Is Done

I’m more than an average teenager. Well, at least, in a more private setting.

Picture says it all really. Georg Friedrich Handel, a master composer of his age.

In my world, I have many friends who regard Baroque and Classical music as the sort that “makes you so sleepy!“. Few can comprehend the deepness and beauty of such music. A symphony, a concerto, an operetta, an individual piece…it doesn’t matter. They can evoke all kinds of emotion, from rapture to sorrow, elation to depression.

The modern world is so rushed. Putting on my headphones and listening to Beethoven’s Symphony No.9 brings me back to tranquility. I am that sort of person; tempering reality with dreaminess. And yes, I do have somewhat sophisticated tastes.

I may only be 18, but that doesn’t mean I cannot appreciate a melody.

In any case, a WordPress blog has given me liberties. Unlike my previous blog, I can control its aspects more precisely. Before this it’s just philosophical rants and my life (sporadically). But now I want to move beyond that.

I do hope you’ll enjoy my blog, with my likes and dislikes, quips and rants, and all sorts in between. I hope I can be known more through the words I type.
