Classical Music is changing my life
I've always had a wide range of taste in music, from Art Blakey and Max Roach, Elvis to the Beatles, Beach Boys, Stones, to Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, to Johnny Mathis and Billy Joel, to Green Day and the Offspring, to Drake and Kendrick Lamar and J Cole, to David Guetta, and Kygo and Illenium etc etc.
But recently I've been exposed to classical music by my best friend from high school who used to work atbut then uprooted his life a few years ago to study music in Zurich and travel around Europe playing the organ.
I must say classical music is really profound. Not to sound cheesy but it really can take you through a wide range of emotions and feels much more like an experience than just listening to a song. It's helped me stay more focused when working, its helped me wind down when Im trying to sleep, its helped me feel better when im in a bad mood, its made going for a walk much more therapeutic. Its motivated me to be more creative, more empathetic, more interested in other people and things.
It's really hard to explain but Im glad to be able to experience these things from music that I've never been exposed to before. Initially Mozart and Bach then Brahms and Schubert and Schumann. Liszt and Chopin and Debussy, Haydn and lately Gustav Mahler has been blowing my mind.
