November 20, 2007 at 4:07 PM"If music be the food of love, play on..." Duke Orsino in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night
Music is the motivation, fertilizer, or bread for many emotions. I am not in love, yet. Well, I love God, my mom, and brother and others, but I mean in love with a boy. I guess the music that would fuel the most pain, aggravation, provocation, butterflies and whatever else is associated with falling in love would be Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D Major. This is a highly romantic concerto with its wide-spanning rhythmic feelings and tonal colors.
I want Tchaik to be played at my wedding. I also associate marriage with death, so I would like to have the Tchaik played at my funeral. :) (Gosh, just kidding; do not have a heart attack.)
