‘To Music’ The same meaning of Franz Schubert’s ‘An die Musik’

Dear followers and friends, maybe the most important discovering of the humanity for our mood’s wellness would be the music. In my life, I’m embraced to a rounded  ‘float’ now. But this was not made with plastic, because is an infinite music sheet, so powerful against my daily pains and troubles.  
I am a lover of all kinds of music. Within each style I have my personal preferences, but love all the musical genres, from north to south, from east to west and, from the oldest until music made today.

The prestigious german record label ECM was born with the famous motto “the most beautiful sound after silence”. Silence is not only a bliss to our ears, but also an indispensable measure of time in music. Here all the musicians that appear in this post are in ‘pause’, a true chance to us for  concentrate our senses in our beholding.

Thanks a lot as ever and let’s enjoy, remember to click pause when you finish. Music is nourishing a lot of hearts.
