I love classical music. I really do. But lately I’ve found it more and more difficult to keep wading through all the negativity, navel gazing and whining and remember why it is I fell in love with this stuff in the first place. The beauty. The anguish. The joy. And, god forbid, the fun.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll posting some pieces that mean something to me in an effort to try and reconnect with the music. I’d love to hear about what these pieces mean to you, if anything, your suggestions as to what else I should listen to and pretty well anything else that you care to share.
