music for the soul August 5, 2009

Posted by walnutsrice in favourite items, in clarity.

I was packing my stack of cds today, and realise I listen to a range of music. I think taste in music changes with age. I grew up on classical music and New Age Classical – Kitaro, Kevin Kern, Yanni. In my teens, I briefly enjoyed pop, and very quickly dropped it for New Age Classical. In the last two years, it has been quite permanently been jazz, Bossa Nova, and New Age Classical, with a dash of classic rock thrown in. Guns and Roses, Bon Jovi (any of his albums up to Its My Life). I have recently been hooked to the High Society cds, in-house compilations from That Cd Shop, particularly Shanghai Jazz, Shanghai Diva and Passion.

Yanni Live at The Acropolis is a fantastic introduction to his music.  I have been listening to him since 12 and i still think this is timeless. Recently, I have also begun to like Lang Lang – some pianists play long string of keys that doesn’t seem to make much sense but for his, there was a definite progression in the ‘story’ of this music and space for emotions to follow along.
