    Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juli­et”… some of the most emo­tion­al­ly stim­u­lat­ing music I’ve ever heard. Prokofiev weaves a pat­tern of ten­der love into the coarse fab­ric of blind hatred and ends with that qui­et strain at the end… hope.

    Thank you. You made my day with this music.

    I am so hap­py you are enjoy­ing it! And thrilled to have made your day.

    I put a lot of thought into today’s playlist. I am such a 20th Cen­tu­ry Clas­si­cal music girl, and a great deal of today’s music are is some of my favorite mod­ern clas­si­cal music.

    It *is* very emo­tion­al music.
