con Rubato

Music Education major at Ohio University. Sold my soul and decided to be a triple primary in piano, organ and voice (crying). In real time though, I'm an aspiring music historian. Enchanted with Brahms. Disenchanted with Chopin (this is putting it mildly, I actually loathe the man). Classical music makes me cry/laugh/succumb to peer pressure on a daily basis. With all that being sad, this is my classical music melancholy from me to you.

Sonata Form

If we were a medical school, and you were here as a med student practicing appendectomies, you’d take your work very seriously because you would imagine that some night at 2 AM someone is going to waltz into your emergency room and you’re going to have to save their life. Well, my friends, someday at 8 PM someone is going to walk into your concert hall and bring you a mind that is confused, a heart that is overwhelmed, a soul that is weary. Whether they go out whole again will depend partly on how well you do your craft.

from Karl Paulnack’s welcome address for Boston Conservatory (via dmkozlowski)

I just really really want to sing this one day. God bless Monteverdi.
