I wish more people enjoyed orchestral music. Not just The Planets or showy Mahler symphony movements, but pieces you have to dig for. It makes me sad that when I go to the symphony or opera, I nearly exclusively see college music majors and elderly patrons in the audience. What if the powerful music of Tchaikovsky 6, Bruckner 4, and the Barber Violin Concerto was commonplace today? Would there be any real culture shift? Presumably, yes, but more importantly, I feel that classical music has much more room for research. Every single piece has a story: a motive for writing, unique compositional techniques and form, and for many, a fantasy story for which the piece was inspired. Even with the best modern music I can think of composed in the last few decades, there is little material that possesses anything more than an interesting lyrical story or a compelling chord progression. This is not to trash non-orchestral music, as I still play Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead daily, but I do longingly wish that orchestral music was a topic of discussion for the masses today.
The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.
why is it that when white people invaded North America and killed millions of Native Americans they were called “settlers” but when Black and Brown people cross the border they’re called “illegals”?
why is it that when white people kidnapped sold and enslaved millions Black people it was called a “trade”, but when Black and Brown people steal products it’s called “robbery”?
