I’ve been thinking a lot about what I should write about, and the reason being is because I take things in life seriously. Yes, things like this blog.
I’ve always been a very attentive and prepared, and the fact that I always do amazing research goes without saying. Classical music has been something that has inspired me to get through school, to stay up nights just to get my grade up by one letter or a plus, and I truly believe that everyone shot give it a shot, no matter the background.
In my opinion, it’s never to early to try anything, unless of course it self destructive, which I’m strongly against. I could go on and on about the benefits of music for pregnant women, children and even the water we drink on daily basis, but will go ahead and move onto the topic which is the Top 3 Favorite Classical Music Pieces.
Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi – #1
The first time I’ve heard it, was in the 5th grade and it has blown me away. Every time I hear it, my heart is reminded of that little girl with a long pony tail, that writes in her diary every night before sleep about the things that went on that day, the people she’s met and spoke with. This beautiful piece of classical music history wash created back in 1723 and I’m positive that it will live for centuries to come, unlike all those pop and rap songs that mean absolute nothing and talk about sex, drugs and how to spank that booty.
Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner – #2
Truth to be told, I love most of Richard Wagner’s pieces, but I’ve decided to make it a point to have only 3 favorites, and I don’t like to say it but nothing beats the Four Seasons. Ride of the Valkyries is one of the part from the infamous Ring Cycle. My very first encounter was fairly recent. How recent you may ask? As late as 2 years ago I have come across this beautiful piece of art. I was watching a cartoon with my niece and nephew at their mom’s place and was dozing off while the kids were actively watching. What woke me up wasn’t a screaming kid, but the that was playing in the cartoon. The scene of a rabbit being hunted by this guy with a rifle unfolded to this particular music piece. I wish I had a better story, but that’s just how it happened. Ever since then I haven’t stopped listening to Wagner’s beauts.
Nessun Dorma by Giacomo Puccini – #3
This one in particular brings back the memories of my mother, who is currently living a retired life with my father. They have recently moved to one of Virginia’s retirement homes. Why does it make me think of my mom? She was the person in my life who’s introduced me to it Giacomo’s music. My mom would sing to his opera day and night no matter what is going on at home. There was no way to even argue with her, because she’d just start singing… The very first time though I recall watching her wash the dishes after dinner was over with and she began to sing. Her passion as well as mine is the reason I’ve included this piece into my top 3.
I hope that you can agree and relate in one way or another.
