My father used to blast his classical melodies while the house went on as always.My love for classical started there and I moved from there to love all genres,but always having a place in my heart for this style of music that stirred inside what could not be spoken.Nowadays I find love like this in the soundtracks of the cinema.Movies not only visually stunning and a treat for the eyes,...but for the ears as well,....filling me up with unexplained happiness.Movies like Pride & Prejudice(Jean-Yves Thibaudet-Composer),The Painted Veil(Alexandre Desplat-Composer),Lord of the Rings(Howard Shore-Composer),Shindlers List(John Williams-Composer).
I wish I could explain to you the beauty this kind of music resonates in my head as the notes dance in my heart.Music like this awakens the soul,fills the heart and mind with nothing but feeling.Perhaps sweetness,perhaps sadness,perhaps joy,perhaps love.Only Feeling.
Last Night I found that feeling again,moving me to tears.Its not very often that music brings me to tears,not very often my mind begins begins to whirl,dizzy with emotion.Not very often a lump arises in my throat wanting to speak,and I cant.
When I first saw the preview for "The Single Man",I immediately put in on my Netflix list,...not because it looked like an interesting movie but because the music caught my ears and I simply had to enjoy more of it.Then again..Colin Firth was in it and .....Yowza...Me liky Colin Firth!!
I was alarmingly surprised by the movie.Beautiful,tragic,shocking,heartbreaking,evocative and that was in the first 20 minutes.
The first scene drew me in..the scene..the music..ahh the music..playing "Stillness of the Mind" by Abel Korzeniowski.Stunning.
After the movie,I did the obvious and ordered the album on itunes and have been enjoying it ever since.
