After a post in another thread, I got to thinking about how some music can bring about such powerful emotions just on hearing it. I used to lay on my back with headphones on and just get transported away, lost in the beauty of some of the music.

A favourite of mine is Ennio Morricone who has done some absolute masterpieces - the man is a genius!

Post your own favourites here to share.

Here are a few tracks to get started with that I find incredible to listen to.


On earth as it is in heaven - (main theme and variation of Gabriel's Oboe) from The Mission - Ennio Morricone

Gabriel's Oboe - from The Mission - Ennio Morricone

Casualties of War - from Casualties of War - Ennio Morricone

Cockey's Song - from Once upon a time in America - Ennio Morricone

Il Tramonto (The Sundown) - Ennio Morricone

Music sings to the soul, the thread that holds us to the dream.
To hear the music is to step closer to the source.
to understand it and make it is to be like the creator itself.
music starts at 10secs in first video

Not sure if you intended this to be classical only, but part of this song is rather moving, in a -gaze / psychedelic kind of way. A dynamic change occurs at minute mark 2:43 which is what I'm talking about...

apart from morricone, i have to say pretty disappointing

so my turn, although most of you won't connect with this





obviously the magic from raga& indian classical comes from a full live performance with a long alap and those where just snapshot of it

different style same origin, Nusrat

I didn't intend to mean it should only be classical music - any music can move you. It's just that while I love all sorts of types of music, there is something about the 'classical' ones I posted that make them stand above the others for me.

Here's a non-classical one I love


Song to the Siren - This Mortal Coil

I can listen to this anytime...many times in a row...and I love the video.

It's old but a classic that moves me for sure:

I'm a massive Gregorian chants fan, Latin catholic music, most songs have pure stories. Also a big fan of patriotic classical music like rule Britania and Jerusalem.

As a pianist, it's many classical pieces that are the ones that move me the most...Elgar, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Lizst, Schumann, Beethoven.

The Genius that is Mozart:



My favourite piano concerto:



Probably the most thought&emotion-provoking piece by Beethoven:



(Also always had a soft spot for good classic RnB, as I'm a soppy person like that)

Music has a huge impact on human physiology and emotions. The rhythm developing from the beating heart. The melodies and scales from nature and the harmonic overtone series. The overtone series is the frequency of waves in the compression and rarefication wake of a primary tone.

A music director in a college jazz course showed us how a song (happy birthday) played in a major scale can sound happy and bright, but that the same song played in a minor scale sounded sad and ominous. Melodies played up the scale sound uplifting, while melodies descending the scale have the opposite effect.

Music is a powerful influence.
