Sibelius

ok, so i have to play for my grandfather's funeral this week...not excited...not a good weekend...so blah. I'm lucky that I'm even doing this. Well, I played Be Still my Soul today, and Caitlin played the New World in her proficiency yesterday, and I think it reflects my mood. Its such a beautiful and lush piece. And yet the melody is so simple. It's interesting, some composers write music that is so complex and flashy with huge chords and such so that they are remembered and are beautiful pieces, while the New World melody is so simple, and yet it is beautiful and loved by many. I think this is a parody in life...you don't have to be flashy and constantly complex for people to love and remember you...you can be simple and beautiful and people will love you and remember you. ok, goodnigt
