Music That Makes Us Emotional
I was talking about the Zone and Music yesterday....I once had the piece, Grazioso from Concerto in D Major, by George Philipp Telemann, bring tears to my eyes while painting at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. I was a registered copyist there for a number of years and I was working on my copy of a beautiful dutch still life when this piece played. I was so transported into the painting, the music was so beautiful, that tears came to my eyes. It was one of those rare moments in life when you know why you were put onto this planet. I have always wanted to be a musician, alas, one gift is all I received. My fingers were meant to paint, not play an instrument.
