Prompt 20 – MUSIC ♪♫♫♪

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music. /A.Huxley/


There’s something endearing for me in the sounds of a barrel organ


Memories about the good, old gramophone


A form of true art – making your flute sing


The one and only Edvard Hagerup Grieg


Trust me – hearing “orchestra” of goat bells up in the mountains in dawn is a beautiful musical experience

You’re welcome to play along – I can’t wait to see what you will come up with!

  6. I love your quote, Ese. When I was camping on the mountainsides in Switzerland many years ago I awoke to the cow bells jangling their way across the meadows. I think I would enjoy the goat bells at dawn.

  27. Ese … do you know of an English writer called Rose Tremain? One of her most wonderful novels is called … wait for it! … MUSIC AND SILENCE. You’d better read it! 🙂

    1. I do, yes! When the mood is right, Peer Gynt is very much on time, though for me from his music nothing beats Piano Concerto in A minor.
      In my classical music favourites folder among many others can be found quite a bit from Bizet, Debussy, Vivaldi and Tchaikovsky but I am afraid nothing from Sibelius. me and him…we don’t click 🙂


      1. ‘hahaha’ – Sibelius and I have a deal – when I’m in bad mood I play Sibelius and only then – his music are a bit “dark” after a few minutes it’s over – my friends laugh at me and claim that I’m in fact can’t stand his music and that’s why my mood change so quick from bad to happy again … 🙂 🙂 😉

        So in fact about nordic classic music Sibelius and Grieg are the two only I listen to – Peer Gynt is really great… 🙂

        Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, Bizet – agree with you – Verdi (Requiem), Ravel (Bolero) – yeah there’s a lot good ‘noise’… 🙂 😉


        1. You and Sibelius – that’s a clever approach! Even if it’s in a way “love – hate” relationship, it seems to be working for you.
          When my world has turns into thin ice, I am all into Barber’s Adagio for strings. Looks like there’s some silent agreement going on there as well 😀
          Verdi Requiem…yes…might be handy after Khachaturian’ s Sabre Dance. 😉
