Celebrate Classical Music

August 5, 2012 at 1:51 AM

At Laurie's encouragement, my first blog (thank you Laurie):

Classical Music for me is fulfilling on a spiritual level. It not only communicates a message, but also the intention behind what we do, which always seems to get across to most of the audience. It allows me to face myself, my strengths and my weaknesses and tweak how and why I do things as I keep going through the journey of this life. The violin can be challenging technically, musically, physically, mentally, but on the level of the spirit, all of these are easy. Music is spirit and spirit is music. It is a way for all of us in a moment and space to become one. Nothing can be more special than that!

Hi Christian,

Thanks for sharing that. It really made me think and reminds me a lot of what Beethoven said:

"Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend".

Great art has that quality of lifting us above ourselves and our limited confined existence and making us feel a part of something grand and universal in the spiritual realm. At the same time it makes us more human - or aware of our humanity.
