Put those headphones on now and imagine yourself right smack in the middle of a grand coliseum with an orchestra right in front of you. It’s time to whip out the big guns of classical music.
Music nowadays is as varied as the DNA in human beings. This week’s instalment of PYHOF harks back to the olden days of classical music that has withstood the test of time. It’s true. There are so many genres now that even a sub-genre has a sub-genre.
You need not be a theater enthusiast to appreciate classical music. The mere image of maestros penning their masterpieces on page after page of musical genius is good enough reason to listen to these melodies. A certain shiver goes up your spine when you fine tune your ears to the varying subtleties and intensity of classical music. It’s as if they were made to awe people just with the auditory experience.
Give these classical melodies a listen and tell us which one’s your favorite. Listening to these songs make me cringe (in envy) at the musical talent of the maestros who wrote and the people who perform them. Let’s not complicate things any further and let our ears do the sifting.
