Tuesday's Tune

I don't know why I haven't posted any of my favourite classical pieces yet. For I like classical stuff - my heart undoubtedly belongs to Russian and French music. Tchaikovsky's first piano concert makes me cry. Literally. It has happened in a concert hall, that's why I know.

I had this phase last summer when I read Dostoyevsky's novels and Tchekhov's short stories and listened to Rachmaninoff's music. I would have started speaking in Russian too, if I remembered any. Sadly I don't have good relationships with the language, all I studied over six years is gone with the wind.

But then Rachmaninoff. Today's tune is his heartbreakingly emotional Prelude in C Sharp Minor. I love that piece.
