For the 1‰ classical music nerds out there...



I am lost to the world
with which I used to waste so much time,
It has heard nothing from me for so long
that it may very well believe that I am dead!

It is of no consequence to me
Whether it thinks me dead;
I cannot deny it,
for I really am dead to the world.

I am dead to the world's tumult,
And I rest in a quiet realm!
I live alone in my heaven,
In my love and in my song.

Friedrich Rückert (1788 - 1866)

@wezel You would be surprised at the amount of heavy metal fans who also like classical music myself included and a lot of heavy metal bands have said classical music influenced thir music.I don't know much about classical music but i often hear some i like.



Wow, that's good to hear ! We classical people are so used to be a tiny minority in the world out there, that it almost always comes as a surprise if somebody has also any interest in it. Keep it alive, there is a hellofalotofmusic, from the 1600's to contemporary...it's actually a wild ride and incredibly diverse...from Gregorian Chant to Unsuk Chin...

Who made you so ill?


That you are so ill,
Who is then the cause?
No cool north wind,
No starry night.
No shade of trees,
No sunbeam’s glow,
No slumbering, no dreaming
In the valley’s blossom bed.

That I bear mortal wounds,
That is the work of men;
Nature let me recover,
They do not let me rest.



Sounds from the past


Do you hear the bird singing?
Do you see the blossoming tree?
Heart, can that not bring you
Out of your fearful dream?

What do I hear? Old sounds
Of a melancholy youthful breast,
From that time when I trusted
The world and its joy.

Those days have gone,
No meadow herb will heal me;
And from the fearful dream,
Only an angel will wake me.

Poems by Justinus Kerner ( 1786-1862 )
Music by Robert Schumann ( 1810-1856 )
