New Thoughts

June 6, 2011

Honestly, I don’t listen to any music these days. I know it’s pathetic because I WRITE about music (duh!) but seriously, I have no time for it. But then again, I ask myself: is this an excuse?

The answer is YES. It is an excuse. Why would I not have time to listen to a little bit of music when I have time to talk to my friends on the phone or do internet shopping?

I feel like I’m missing out a lot these days… haha I’m just complaining right now because I have so much workload and it’s almost finals. Seriously, even though finals are coming my way, I should relax myself and listen to some music. I think it’ll do me some good.

Mozart with his sweet, innocent tunes and Beethoven with his majesty…. and Bach with his originality and Debussy with his dreams… Chopin with his intricate notes and Tchaikovsky with dainty little melodies…. I miss them all.

Sometimes in life I feel like I should lay down everything and just have a little bit of time to look back. And that’s exactly what I need right now… with a little bit of classical music.

Bach Praeludium I

November 26, 2010

Just listen for a while.

Johann Sebastian Bach’s Praeludium I could be described in one word: simple. No big fancy codes. Even the beginners could master this song in 30 minutes.

However, the true beauty that Bach wanted to express truly comes out from the simplicity. It brings peace to anyone listening to the music.

It is well-known that Bach was a devout christian and devoted all his music to God. It is shown clearly through a lot of his music; it gives you an insight to the heaven for a moment. His sincerity and his heart for peace and beauty are very well expressed.

For me, this music is one of my favorite. It rouses the deep peace inside my heart that no other music can–pop, jazz, rock, Mozart, Beethoven–whatever it might be. Also, it is astonishing for me sometimes how simplicity could truly be beautiful.

Please enjoy 🙂
