Great music stands the test of time. If you hummed Beethoven’s 5th Symphony (Duh-Duh-Duh-DUUUUUUH), pretty much anyone alive will be able to hum along with you. That melody is over 200 years old! Something tells me that in the year 2211, the Single Ladies melody will not have the same staying power (sorry Beyonce, but you still got it going on sister!). Mothers and teachers alike have told young aspiring musicians “You just can’t beat the Classics!” as we blasted Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins in youthful rebellion. Now that I am at the age where I think Brussels sprouts delicious, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony and Nevermind peacefully cohabitate in my CD collection.
Some compositions really push your emotional buttons. FCLS008 Classical Drama is a collection of musical intensity that grabs you by the ears and takes you into another world. These classics tell a story that mere words cannot describe!
