“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.” - Ludwig van Beethoven
For Music Saturday today, some classic Beethoven, fro his Symphony No. 7 in A, Op. 92, the second movement, “Allegretto”. This is one of the most sublime and beautiful Beethoven themes, one that moves from dark and lugubrious introspection to a sunny repose, and then once again back into the dark spaces of a tortured soul.

  1. Thank you for this post Nicholas but it is with regret that I have to state "Allegretto" leaves me cold.

    I do so love (most) classical music - I love the way it speaks to me and stirs my soul.

    I wonder if you would visit and let me know what you think (of Kate)?
