  3. It’s very hard to go wrong with Mozart…

    People tend to think of his music as light and frivolous (from Amadeus?), and certainly there is in much of his music a sort of transcendant joy. But there are so many other emotions at play in his work.

    Classical music is what I listen to most these days. I’ll go through phases when I tend to listen to one composer more than another. But over the years I’ve found that Mozart, Bach, and Haydn are the ones I can always listen to.

    • I’m not as familiar with Haydn, but I like both Bach and Mozart quite a bit. I’ve performed Bach’s Wachet Auf as part of a choir, which was really neat. The Carmina Burana (an altogether more modern work–sort of) was also fun to perform.

  4. Neither of the pieces ring a bell, but since I’ve got all of Bach’s cantatas, I’ll check the Wachet Auf out. I will give it a listen to this morning. I’ll also see what I make of the other one as well.
