Listening to Apocalyptica. It’s been a while since I have, but it certainly reminds me what a beautiful instrument the cello is. The deep, resonating tones never fail to make my chest swell and emotions rise. As if I wish to breathe it in. I close my eyes and imagine a velvet stage curtain made of their music that I can wrap myself in and just on the other side is a cavernous theatre filled with inspiration that I can pluck from the seats.
All in all I like cello music in general but when it’s played with such passion in contemporary tones, I fall in love.
