How do you feel about classical music?
When I was a kid, I thought classical music was SO BORING. 😮 It just made me feel sleepy. 😉
Now, I just LOVE IT! ❤ I find classical music to be EXTREMELY HEALING. If I am having a stressful day, I put on classical music, and I immediately feel my body relax. 🙂
Listening to classical music helps me quiet my racing thoughts and settle into the present moment. ❤
My FAVORITE classical piece is Beethoven’s “Moonlight” Sonata.
Whenever I hear this song, my heart smiles. ❤
In the NPR story called “Why Do We Love the ‘Moonlight’ Sonata?” I learned that regarding Piano Sonata No. 14 (“Moonlight”), Beethoven said “Surely I’ve written better things.” 😮 Yes, Beethoven was a PHENOMENAL artist and released great masterpieces! But, none of his other pieces move me the same way that “Moonlight” does. ❤
I also learned from this story that as of 2018, there were at least 80 recorded versions this song! It seems, that a lot of other people love this piece as well! 😉 Please be sure to check out this story, here, to listen to various artists perform Beethoven’s song.
What about you? How do you feel when you hear “Moonlight”?
It is amazing to me that Beethoven finished “Moonlight” in 1801, and it is still impacting people today! ❤
