Paula's Thoughts

I am not a composer. My thoughts and reactions to the symphonies will be "emotional". All art forms evoke an emotion. So you will not see me commenting on themes and bridges. I am approaching the 100 symphonies chronologically. And so I have listened to two Haydn, two Beethoven, and two Mozart symphonies. (I am leaving the pre-1750 because I am still having a discussion with my two music nerd friends if the true symphony form existed before 1750.) I like working to Haydn. I like driving to Mozart. And I just like listening to Beethoven. He is familiar to all of us. I will be staying in the Classical era for about two weeks. Unless a piece makes me want to write, I am signing off until the Romantic era. Paula M.....
