Some of the loveliest music ever written. 26 minutes that will rest your soul. It is the last movement of Mahler 3. Only those with real musical souls will appreciate this. It’s not background music. It is best listened to in the dark, without distractions.
I posted this on Facebook tonight, and my friend Ruth, wrote:
“Ingrid, thank you very much for sharing this.. Truly beautiful from start to finish. What a lovely past half hour I’ve spent sitting here, relaxed, with head back, eyes closed, listening and savoring each and every moment. What a delightful surprise to my evening.”
The word for this kind of music is “transcendent.”
