The transformative power of classical music (TED talk)

Regarding this inspiring TED talk on the transformative power of classical music, it is fascinating to hear and see how classical music has a universal appeal, and how everyone seems to have an innate ability to understand the musical notes, and it is just that some aren’t awakened to their ability yet.

Like the speaker said, “the conductor doesn’t make a sound. He depends, for his power, on his ability to make other people powerful. And that changed everything for me. It was totally life-changing. People in my orchestra said, “Ben, what happened?” That’s what happened. I realized my job was to awaken possibility in other people.”

I also love how such music can awaken possibility and evoke emotions, passions and memories in people that they probably never knew have resided in them all this while.

ERNESTO CORTAZAR “BEETHOVEN’S SILENCE”

Reminds me of Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”.

Original piano composition – Acronical Epiphany

The piano music is evocative and has a contemplative mood and the crescendo towards the end is stirring. I think it can be used as a soundtrack in a movie or video slideshow. I learnt that “acronical” means happening at sunset or twilight.

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.” Carl Jung
