Well, now that I've ranted a bit..
(and talked to Erin, which always makes me feel better :) the rant was in no way directed at you or anything, it was merely me venting over the fact that I just don't understand haha!)
Guess who got tickets to the Symphony for Saturday?? No guess. Really! GUESS!
2 tickets for the Saturday night performance of Brahm's Fourth! I'm so stoked. I love all live music, but my new true
love may be the symphony. I got to sit in on their rehearsal tonight. Well, you know, got to watch at least, since I don't play. Though I think if I could play anything it would be a tie between the bass guitar and cello. I spent most of my time watching the cellos tonight, and when the conductor (who was Australian and floppy haired) wanted just them to play a section it was so beautiful. Low, full-bodied and resonating sound. **LOVE** I love classical and romantic music, and Brahm's is a classical romanticist, I suppose, so I really like his particular compositions.
A lot of people don't like classical music. But my philosophy is, if you've never heard it, you should take a listen to a couple of different types of it sometime. I think a good appreciation of music is an appreciation of all music (not necessarily a liking) and you should listen to as many different types of music as you can. You never know, Debussy's impressionism may move you and you were completely unaware. But, I do enjoy many types of classical music, so I suppose I'm a bit biased in its favor. I guess what I'm trying to say is not that you should like it, but you should give it a chance. Plus, it makes for amazing
random playlists- a little Tchaikovsky sandwiched in between Panic! at the Disco and the Velvet Underground always makes me laugh.
In other news, I officially won at life today.
Hopefully this will turn into a winning streak since I have a job interview tomorrow (wish me luck!). A job interview and career counseling in the same day... the juxtaposition makes me tremble.
