Today, I am preparing lunch whilst my Wife is at work. I am sat at the dining table listening to Classic FM (You can listen HERE) sipping a cup of tea and pondering the weeks events.
I never used to listen to Classical music, in fact it was always turned off whenever it came on the radio! As I have matured, Classical music has evolved with me. I could never understand how anyone could enjoy listening to this genre of music as it rarely had any lyrics to get your teeth stuck into. That was my mistake, I was always searching for music that had a message!
The English Language is a beautiful Language, however Lyrics are not the pleasure to enjoy within Classical Music. Instead listen to the iterations and variations on a melody, it is full of messages - if you listen carefully!
Even now, after a few years of listening and enjoying the genre I still could not identify many pieces by name. I am no expert: just a fan!
