heartfelt melody

anonymous asked:

Hey! I love reading what you post! Do you have any recommendations for really sad pieces? Thanks in advance :-)

Thanks for the kinds words! Really sad pieces? Get ready to cry, here are some of my favorite “sad” works:

Arvo Pärt: Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten. Slow, a canon that becomes more and more dense and tragic as it continues.

Samuel Barber: Adagio from String Quartet op.11. Would later be written for full string orchestra as the Adagio for Strings, and later the music would be used for a setting of Agnus Dei

Johann Sebastian Bach: Ich ruf’ zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ. Meaning, I call to you, Lord Jesus Christ. It feels so bleak, hopeless, yearning for something better.

Fryderyk Chopin: Various Works. Chopin is like the master of sad piano music. Some that come to mind; his first nocturne, his prelude in e minor, and his waltz op.64 no.2

Sergei Rachmaninoff: Elegy. The opening to his Morceaux Fantasie, op. 9…it is very reminiscent of Chopin and so, so lovely.

Arvo Pärt: My Heart’s in the Highlands. A haunting setting of a poem about homesickness. For soprano and organ, chilling.

Max Richter: Path 5 (delta), from Sleep. Similar to the Pärt song, this is for two wordless singers and organ. Meditative, repetitive, but so addicting.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Lacrimosa from the Requiem in d minor. The sacred lamentation that may be cliche in this category but it is fitting. So much drama in such a short amount of time.

Alexander Scriabin: Andante from Piano Sonata no. 3. Such a longing heartfelt melody, one of the most underrated in the literature.

John Cage: In a Landscape. Ponderous, calming, but a sense of nostalgia and pain. What landscape are we in? It’s more of a soundscape, waves of notes.

Justin's Michelangelo Part 2: Sistine Chapel

You had noticed that Justin had been acting strange for a while. But you brushed it off as just nerves for his album. He always got nervous as his album release date approached, worried that he didn’t work hard enough on it, that it wasn’t good enough.

But normally, all those nerves would go away when he was at the album release party, watching everyone enjoy the album that you knew everyone would love. But something was different this time. It had been a while since the party started- about halfway through the playing of the album- and he still looked nervous.

“Everything alright? 💕” you sent him, hoping you could help your best friend with whatever was bothering him. “Yeah, don’t worry about it.” He replied, but he still looked off. So you pushed a little. You walked up to him this time and almost screamed over the next song “Jay, you don’t look alright. Tell me what’s wrong? Everyone’s loving the album.” He sighed, and you felt relief because you knew he was going to tell you what was going on. “Let’s talk outside. Meet you in the backyard in two?” He proposed. You nodded, still looking concerned. You knew that it was bigger than you’d assumed if he wanted to go outside to talk about it.

It was only two minutes but it felt like forever. All you wanted to do was be able to help him through whatever it was. You hated seeing Justin anything but happy- especially at album release parties. Finally, you looked down at your phone, the light from it almost blinding you and saw two minutes had passed. You make your way through the crowd, smiling at all the familiar faces until you got to the backyard. You looked around for a bit and when you didn’t immediately see him, you pulled put your phone to send him a text.

As you hit send you heard Justin call out for you “Y/N?” with the sound of his phone vibrating on the “where r u?” text you had just sent.

“Justin?” You call out. The light from your phone making it hard to readjust and see him right in front of you. “I know it’s not a blue french horn, but it was the best I could find on short notice.” He says and your eyes readjust to find him standing there with a poorly spray painted guitar from back when he was on his My World tour. “Justin, what’s that for?” You ask. A little confused and a little overwhelmed by the replica of the grand gesture from your favourite show.

“I’ve spent a long time now figuring out what I wanted to say to you in this moment. Trying to figure out how to say just the right words to the girl who always knows exactly what to say.” “Jay..” “Let me finish please. Otherwise I’ll never regain the courage to do it. Y/N, I know I’ll never be able to say exactly the right words to you so I wrote you a song.” Just then he broke out into a heartfelt melody of him expressing just how much he loved you. “It’s you. Only you.” He sang, explaining that you make him happier than he’s ever been, that you make him want to be a better person- one that you could someday love, telling you how he knows he’s messed up a lot in his past, but since you came into his life he’s never felt the need to do any of that because you are the only one he wants to be around. Finally, he got to the end of his song- you were seconds from crying.

How did you not notice his feelings. You could always tell everything about him so how did this slip by. “So what do you think? You think you could give me a chance?” He said.

“Under one condition” you said, as you walked closer towards him. “Anything” “I want you to make sure you look at me the way you look at your subway sandwiches, because that’s true love” you said. He laughed and pulled you in for a hug, kissing you on your forehead. “Why do you have to be such a goofball” you shrugged, giggling into his shirt.

“What’s the name of that song anyways?” “Sistine Chapel” he said.
