Music of the Higher Spheres

MusicTimelineI love music.  Like books, I cannot imagine a world without music.  Some of  my absolute favorite music came out of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods.  This is Music of the Higher Spheres for me.  What do I mean by Music of the Higher Spheres?  This is the composition of music by individuals who seems to have been touched by something greater than their human selves.  Their music is genius and touches your soul.

sheet musicThese three eras in the musical timeline consists of many composers; some more famous than others.  Going back to the beginning of the Renaissance period so much genius was produced in art, writing and music from 1400 to 1900.   During these times humanity was either hitting the celestial highs or sinking as low as humans could go (examples: massacre of American Indians/taking their land by force and the slave trade).  The Declaration of Independence is one of the greatest documents ever written in the history of humankind during this period, yet took place during one of the most horrible realizations in American history.  Can we ever learn to be exceptional without also being the worst that we can be?

Tchaikovsky My favorite composer from the classical and romantic eras is Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.  Tchaikovsky’s compositions really pulls me in every time.  I never get tired of listening to his music.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, May 7, 1940 – November 6, 1893

Other composers whose work I love to listen to are Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig Van Beethoven and Frederic Chopin.  You can actually download Music of the Higher Spheres on Amazon.  Some are FREE and others are as low as .89 cents.  This is great music to listen to when you are meditating (yes, I did say meditating), cleaning your house and during a long drive.

    I grew up listening to this music, and Tchaikovsky is also my favorite classical composer. All this music is so complex and enriching, and I can’t imagine my life without it.
