One of my favorite classical tunes is from Tchaikovsky "Winter Dreams" or "Winter Daydreams":

When I was a young fella in my twenties I dated a classically trained musician for 6 years, and she taught me plenty about the aesthetics of classical music. I saw a completely different side to her during these moments, and I cherish what we shared briefly even today, I learned a lot from her. She loved this piece, so I'll share it here.

One of the great piano classics by Mozart:


I'm currently practicing the first movement, and although I don't have as much time/energy as I might want for this, it greatly soothes me, especially given all that is going on. It's kind of a "the way is the goal" thing, mastering something in tiny steps, being fully concentrated on pulling that music I hear in my mind out of my unwilling flesh...

The way Barenboim plays it actually comes close to how I "hear" it, compared to all other versions I know of, but still not quite. It's annoying if you know exactly how you want it to sound, but can't pull it off that way quite yet :-D Anyway, for me it was a great decision to get back into classical piano a bit after a 25+ years hiatus. Love it.

I'm not all too much into classical music but there are two compositions that I really like. The first one is "Méditation" from Jules Massenet interpreted by David Garrett:


And the second one is Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata:

The film tells the story of three generations, united by their love of music and dance, from the inter-war period to the 1980s, in four countries: France, Germany, Russia and the United States. The four stories come together in the final scene, a concert in Paris.

Quite cool! Thanks ;-D

Filmed under Eiffel tower? I will never forget my visits to Paris. Last time I was there I actually went on an Eiffel tour and spent some time enjoying its grandeour and the sight of Paris from the top. When my wife and me came back down and had a snack in the park that is close to Eiffel tower we were awarded by being in a flock of Crows which did an amazing whirling "dance". My wife was scared of them while I was amased :lol:
