    Cello Concerto In E Minor Op# 85

    One of the most powerful pieces of music I've ever heard! So much emotion laced in every note, pain, fear, tragedy..... love and loss. I get chills every single time I hear it, even on repeat. When a piece of music can do that, you know it's remarkable, unadulterated beauty.

    My boyfriend and I were going out of town

    for dinner. I had The Planets in my CD player and he said to me after I had merged onto the highway, "Mars makes merging very intense and suspenseful"

    Vivaldi

    I love this guy.  The Four Seasons is my favorite work by him, particularly the Summer Concerto.  There's just so much passion in his works.

    Classical music makes me have out of body

    experiences. It's absolutely incredible. It can make me happy or sad. It can actually make my heart hurt. Or have butterflies. I can't even begin to explain. Just A couple of my thoughts.

    I usually listen to the harder type stuff, but there is nothing better than just relaxing and listening to classical music. Unless in an elevator.
