Für Elise

August 24, 2010

or For Elise in english

We often know the what, but fail to question the why.

This is a familiar piece by Beethoven.

Its formal title is “Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor (WoO 59 and Bia 515) for solo piano”

This piece is discovered by Ludwig Nohl

No one know who Elise is, one said that Ludwig may have transcribed the title incorrectly and the original work may have been named “Für Therese”, a reference to Therese Malfatti von Rohrenbach zu Dezza (1792–1851), a friend and student of Beethoven’s to whom he proposed in 1810. However she turned him down to marry the Austrian nobleman and state official Wilhelm von Droßdik in 1816.

Another study suggested that it could be for a german soprano singer Elisabeth Röckel (1793–1883), the later wife of Johann Nepomuk Hummel.

She is called Elise in vienna. A close friend of Beethoven.

To me, this piece is the sound of a gleeful love lost.

I would believe Beethoven to be a fine gentleman.

Mornings with SATC

August 6, 2010

I like to start my mornings with good music, the sex and the city soundtrack has been one of my all time fav. Here’s a track that I often kick start brilliant mornings with 🙂

Love, where is your fire?

March 18, 2010

It could be out of melancholy that I have things running in my mind on repeat. The song that runs on repeat these days is Love, where is your fire. I love the bridge. Life had been really hectic, but I want to always hold God close to my heart.

“Then a doubt comes to lie at the back of my mind
That I’ll offer you me and you’ll politely decline
So i hasten to mute it, I’ll shout and rebuke it – “away!””

Enjoy the song. It’s the kind of song, I will just tune in to and chill with God. 🙂 Holding my heart out

The Chanel Guitar

I am like all smiles when I see this =)

But practically speaking, I don’t think it’s a good guitar. The neck is too fat!

chanel_guitar_butterboomStill, it’s nice to look at.

Perhaps, they should team up with Taylor.

To come up with a Chanel-Taylor series with cindy inlays on it’s neck

My goodness! That will truly be my dream guitar =)

Will be good if it is made of composite carbon. HEHEHEHE!
