More TFE

I found this weeks task too hard! I don't know why. Below is all I could manage.

The piece of music?

Bach's Cello Suite No.1 - Prelude





Too beautiful.
Even a philistine like me
is moved.

Listened to the music and fair play Doub I would have to say that your poem nails it dead,what else could you say? It's also interesting that you chose music without words,it's always the lyrics that are the catalyst for me heightened and intensified by the tune. Thanks a million for joining in. (More torture for next Monday-if you can standit?!)

Oh no, you're wrong. Nine words that tell us a lot, rather beautifully, about you, and the music.

The cello suites have that effect on me, too. I gaze into the middle distance, overcome. Which is to say, your poem was perfect.

Dominic Rivron said...

There's nothing wrong with brevity! I like what you wrote. I play the piece a lot - sometimes to children in schools. It's very good for doing exactly what you say: making people wake up to classical music.

Perhaps it felt hard because this music is "too good". Not quite the same thing, but I know the great song composers like Schubert often preferred (and prefer) to work with poems that are less than incredible because,well, what can you add to (or say about) something that says it all?

I love that DO, you chose a hard one. The Cello is so so beautiful, and you are right, there are no words....

Ah man classical music like that is, like, cosmic man.

I'm gonna have to get in on this next week

Absolutely. That 'less is more' thing is sometimes so true. And it's an honest piece - that's worth plenty too.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I think Dominic might have hit the nail on the head, the piece is just too good to be added to! Okay, I'm off to listen to it again for the five millionth time!
