5.0 out of 5 stars Divine masterpiece, 4 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Albinoni: 12 Concertos, Op.9 (Audio CD)
I heard Tomaso Albinoni's music occasionally on the radio and decided to buy his famous twelve concertos for violin and oboes. They have been a revelation to me, as I was only really familar with Vivaldi, Handel and Back from the Baroque composers. To say Albinoni's music is beautiful is not enough. It is truly timeless and divine. I came home after a hard work's week, stressed, tired and put Albinoni on. Suddenly a sense of peace descended on me, I felt as if for a while I was able to detach myself from my body and fly somewhere up to the sky from where I looked down on myself, and our world, and...as the majestic notes gently caressed my ears, my whole soul was moved. All our problems, our lives's woes and little conflicts became utterly irrelevant. I would not call myself a classical music buff and listen to a wide variety from rock, grunge and electronica to latin, pop and even country and folk. But Albinoni is really accessible to absolutely anyone anywhere, his music transcends trends, styles and time. It speaks universal language of the human soul. Shivers went down my spine and I sat there in total disbelief at the amazing sounds playing on my CD player. My whole being was moved to the core. I have made a good friend in Albinoni and will treasure his company from now on. Am looking forward to the London bike Skyride tomorrow with Albinoni on my ipod.
