Monday Sidebar: Classical Music

I like classical music, most of the time. And once in awhile I run into something that just blows my mind, such as Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique which creeps me out pretty much any time I hear it.

This video, a TED Talk by Benjamin Zander, reminds me that it can be so powerful and moving, whether its a full orchestra or just a lone piano – its the joint act of listening and being moved to the same performance that is the true power of classical music.
