I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society

Day 30: The piece of music that got you into the whole classical genre

Shostakovich: 7th Symphony “Leningrad”, Op. 60 [extract from I mvt.]

Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi
Conducted by Oled Caetani

——

Classical music has been a constant in my life: my mother comes from a family of musicians (I often wish I inherited even a half of my ancestors’ musical talent, two of them being dramatic tenor Giuseppe Borgatti and pianist Renata Borgatti) and my father grew up listening to classical music, so I never really got into the genre all of a sudden.

But my love for it was renewed and made even stronger by Shostakovich’s 7th Symphony, discovered only a few years ago and my first real musical love. I will always remember the first time I listened to its first movement and how it mesmerized and fascinated me, how it made me fall in love with Shostakovich in a matter of minutes. It is my escape from reality and what keeps me fighting for it at the same time. It’s the main reason I decided to create this blog to begin with.

Day 29: The piece of music that you named your pet after

Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 3 in C major Op.2

——

When I got my budgies, their original names were Tweetie and Lola. I thought they were lame so I decided to change them into something more fun and “musical”, if possible. Schroeder was the first name that came to mind. I called the other yellowish one Frieda (the name of Lucy’s rival). Here’s a photo of the two of them together in one of the rare moments they weren’t trying to kill each other.
