sure darling :)
For you depressed/sad people out there! Listen to this and it will get better, it helps me so so so much! Seriously!
I can only give you the links to a few pieces, simply because a lot of youtube videos are banned in germany and I am not sure if these links work. Also, for operas and requiems/preludes there are not always playlists, etc…
Always search for a better interpret! I´ve got most of those on CD but I´ve heard some terrible interpretations already which almost ruined the whole opera/piece so don´t rely on those I found a link for :) And believe me, you hear the difference between a good singer and a terrible one, even if it´s less obvious in the classical genre.
Pieces I adore (in no particular order, I love them all :D):
- Mozart´s Requiem (perfect in and out, there is no better Requiem than this one)
- Orpheo y Eurdice, Opera by Gluck (there are 2 versions, one in italian, one in french but in the end you don´t necessarily have to understand everything they say right? :D)
- Violin Sonata No. 1 by Bach (yes, the one Sherlock plays when Moriarty comes to visit him in TRF, but in the episode you can only hear 30 seconds of it, 8 minutes are just as beautiful :))
- Don Giovanni, Opera by Mozart (this opera is one of the best ever, if not the best!)
- Preludes by Chopin (especially the raindrop prelude is perfect, you will recognize it when you hear it, I am sure)
- St. Matthews Passion by Bach (usually I am not a big fan of religious music but oh gosh! I tell you, I listened to this everyday in the winter, it´s amazing, especially “Mache dich mein Herze rein” and overture and ending and basically everything, it´s epic!)
- Badinerie by Bach (you can´t be sad when you listen to this, you can´t be! It´s impossible! This piece is really short but rather famous, and it always improves your mood, I can guarantee it)
- Lohengrin Overture by Wagner (for the Chaplin fans: this is the beautiful music Chaplin used in his globe scene from the Great Dictator. It´s amazing, I am not usually a big fan of Wagner, not at all tbh, but this! this is beyond beautiful)
There are a few more and I might update this list sometime soon :)
Seriously, if you think classical music is boring and shitty then maybe make up your mind, some are truly beautiful. Of course it´s not everbody´s cup of tea but a lot of those will be quite familiar for you and you can´t deny the beauty some of those works have. It´s incredible.
When sad: this!
