Song a Day Challenge, Day 3

I grew up listening to all kinds of music.  I took piano lessons and mom taught me how to play a little on the organ.  I loved the fact you pushed pedals with your feet.  I can imagine how I’d do at that today!😂😱. So my pick for today is a song I learned to play (most of it) a million years ago, Liebestraum composed by Franz Liszt, 1811-1866 near Hungary.

“This particular piece written by Franz was published in 1850 and written while he was in Weimar. The word Liebestraum refers to a three set piano works and also “dream of love”. Liebestraum is one of Franz’s slower meaningful romance pieces. Liszt composed this piece in hopes of attracting but, also giving the public a sense of adoration.”

“Choosing a piece for this period was difficult only until coming across this piece. Listening to the song for not even a minute seemed to be very gentle and calming which gave of a certain feeling that is hard to describe. The amount of passion and emotion that was heard for the first time was immense. Listening to the whole piece, one can truly see how enthusiastic Franz was about his music and how he loved to incorporate his own strong feelings in his songs.”

 

My two nominations for today are:  cyranny.wordpress.com and judydystrabrown.com
