    Ottarino Respighi: Italian Passion At Its Finest!

    Respighi's "Ancient Airs and Dances" has been a favorite of mine for many years. I've heard numerous orchestral interpretations of it, and I'm always amazed at how each sounds so surprisingly different. The one to me that captures Respighi's passion at its most intense...

    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.

    Brahms German Requiem

    Probably like most other people, my experience of music up to the age of 13 was what was in the charts. I was then persuaded to join the school choral society, who were rehearsing Brahms' German Requiem. Wow - I was quite simply blown over backwards by it. I then spent the...

    The Wonders Of Classical Music

    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.

    Best Music To Start The Day With

    For mornings I love baroque, bed time romantic. The most beautiful music I ever heard was Mussorgsky's pictures at an exhibition. The way thunderous happy movements and interspersed with dark and mysterious ones is genius and super emotionally charged. Absolutely amazing.
