OK, so I've been playing these pieces from a book called the Orff Collection, some little piano pieces from Carl Orff. And yesterday, I came across a piece, No. 7, that was really simple and beautiful. It really made me grateful to be playing the piano. It was amazing. I know this sounds cheesy, but I felt really moved. It was so wonderful how he put the notes together, but the fact that I could reproduce it, and be a part of it, was just so touching. This book doesn't have many dynamic markings, so I was able to interpret parts of it myself to make the song mournful.
So I get it. I get the deal about music, and how people get so involved in it. Count me in.
