Yeah, that's right, I'm quoting Frasier Crane in my blog. I'm sorry to say, but it's true.
I'm sure if you are reading this, you know me, so you know I have a love and affection for classical music.
A few months ago, the Seattle Symphony performed a piece called the "Symphony of a thousand" by Mahler(that's not the real title, but what's it's known as)...and every night on 98.1 KING FM they played a commercial saying what a masterpiece it is and how it's not to be missed. I couldn't help but remember what Frasier said(see title of blog), and I chose to not buy tickets.
Tonight on said radio station, they played a recording of that performance, and I thought to myself..."Self! Give it a shot! You're 30 now, maybe you might like it"
So I did. I tried for the better part of an hour, and I really wish I could get that time back.
If I were to compare that piece of music to a piece of art...it would be a large white canvas with random colors splattered wherever. No rhyme or reason. This piece of music was distracting! Imagine, music being distracting!
I could go on and on giving examples, but I won't.
This isn't a blog about music :)
There's plenty of music I don't like (Rachmaniov piano concertos), but this is a whole new category....music I truly do not understand.
It's like a comedian you don't understand...confusing, huh?
Don't try to listen to this piece to try to understand this blog, just take my word for it!
Please! Don't do it!
