Next post: You must be very light, with a lot of grace. But when I listen to Das Lied, it’s the sixth song, ˜Abschied’, which is so special. It’s long, about minutes, and I feel j that through this music I can go into the universe. I own many versions of Das Lied, but one of my favourites is conducted by Leonard Bernstein. Though I was born near Riga, Latvia, my soul and my ( genetic code are Russian, so TCHAIKOVSKY is very special for me. His Sixth Symphony must be very Romantic, very tragic, but not cheap emotion j it must be strong, from deep in the soul. In my CD collection.
