Awaken Light Spirit… I Becon Thee

Whilst preparing to Write my 31st Blog Post, Fear of Writing Success, which I will Write here in a bit, I tossed on my Pandora Station, Wolfgang Amadeus as I named it, which is basically my Classical Music Station. As I noted in my In Moments of Darkness – Puccini Post, my Three Favorite Composers are Mozart, Puccini and Tchaikovsky. Anyway, like I say, as I was preparing to Write my Next Blog Post, this Song came on and Whammed me. Tchaikovky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, OP 35. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard it, though part of it almost sounds Familiar, like someone had based a part of a Film Musical Score on it either Consciously, or Unconsciously. Well, here’s the Piece, make sure you listen until at least the 6th Minute 11th-12th Second of this Video. It is Heroic, and Magnificent. Enjoy

The Version I heard on Pandora was from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The Version Above is Kyung-Wha Chung the 1st Movement, Part 1 of 2.

May 7th 1840-November 6th 1893

Alright, back to Work/Writing, Thanks for Sharing the Moment


In Moments of Darkness – Puccini

Posted in Classical Music, Inspiration, Music, Videos with tags , , , on September 17, 2011 by darkjade68

Longing for something Deep… I look to Puccini.

There are times in our lives when not Distraction, Conversation nor Sleep will do. Times where the pain of things, or something you are feeling, will not subside. And so in some act of More than Desperation, I reach for something Deeper… In Hopes for some Emotional Pathway through these more Difficult Moments. Today, it was Puccini.

I do not for a moment pretend to be an Expert on Composers such as Puccini, Tchaikovsky or Mozart. However, they are my Three Favorites. And my Experience/Relationship with them is one of Appreciation, Awe.

I first heard this song when I was very young, it was used in the Film “Room With a View”.

This was also in Room With A View

Giacomo Puccini - December 22 1858-November 29th 1924
