Anyway, did you know that some of the best and most awesome classical music pieces were inspired by flowers???
like Leo Delibes' opera "Lakmé":
Frederick Delius' "Walk to the Paradise Garden" :
Then there's Giacomo Puccini's "Crisantemi":
Then there's Herbert Howells' "A spotless Rose" which is somewhat more interesting, the verses come from an anonymus writer...and were put on music by several composers...
Then there's Debussy's "Bruyeres"... which means heathland, field...etc
Then there's Schumann's "Dichterliebe"...translated something like Love in verses, or Verses of Love...beautifully talking about the month of May, with buds bursting, with flowers and all that...and the romantic lines "from my tears spring flowers"...thi is trully a wonderful song:
This list goes on and on and on...as nature is the most wonderful muse there can be, and next comes love...The article refers to much more pieces, but I didn't want to make the longest post ever...if anybody would like to hear all the songs inspired by flowers and nature in general, you can find them all on my youtube channel: annek1983.
In the meantime, I have accessto Classic FM also!! Yupeeee!
As my post writing stretches during the whole day, I have enough time to chage moods, and right now I am thinking of the poor people in Oklahoma, my heart goes out to them, but all I can do is pray for them....
Let's appreciate the spiritual and material things we have, and never forget it can all dissappear in a blink of an eye.
