    My knowledge of classical music is shockingly

    bad. However it doesn't stop me enjoying that feeling of being completely emerged in a beautiful piece of classical music. I have recently taken to putting classic fm on and relaxing for an hour with a book. It is amazing how much that can ease so much that goes on in an over...

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 21

    Some nights, I feel so relaxed and peaceful, as if nothing could bother me in the entire world.  I pour a glass of Sangiovese and I turn on music like this and begin to dream about another time. ~Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 performed by Netherlands Chamber Orchestra

    Classical music speaks to my soul.

    It reminds me of my own mortality. Listening to a requiem mass in a live concert is like an out of body experience. I once dated a violinist who played in a professional orchestra. It was such a wonderful experience listening to her make beautiful music. The romantic soul in me...

    Indian Classic Music..

    Music is food for the soul. Indian classical music does just that to you. Every pull of the string and every swara will strike a chord in your heart. When we speak of Indian classic music, we are primarily referring to "pure music" or "ragdaari music". Commonly known as Indian...

    I Am So Glad For Youtube

    I was never a big fan of YouTube until very recently. Even when I started posting songs for Lee it still seemed to me to be full of music in which I had little or no interest. Somehow though I encountered a classical piece - perhaps an excerpt from Carmen - but as I was posting I...

    Yes

    I like listening to it when my other music just doesn't cut it. When I'm really calm, classical music is great but I listen to everything except for three or four genre's that just don't do it for me. <3 music.

    Although it might be thought of as more Jamaican I like reggae. It exudes the feelings of the islands of the Caribbean and flavours. There are lots of songs I like.
