    I'm continuing with Mahlers 5:th. Yes, I'm spending my Saturday listening to this. I was gonna do something else but it didn't work out.

    The first, second and third movements are brisk and high in energy. The symphony has been going on for about 45 minutes and a drastic change in contrast is about to happen:

    4:th movement "Adagietto" for solo harp & strings is one of the most beautiful pieces in classical music. A total inversion of the symphony so far. It is like entering into a moon landscape, a dream world. This is feminine music, composed by a man. The melody is incredibly slow, sometimes almost coming to a standstill, or so it feels. The strings have the melody while solo harp is playing arpeggios, with big intervals. Beautifully sounding bass tones from harp + acoustic bass.

    There is a middle section with a feeling of moving forward. Then the beginning is repeated. At the end there are long notes hovering forever as the music sinks down and comes to rest with chords that almost feel like clusters.

    I once had some relatives listen to this, but I don't recommend it. The music is too deep, we all became uncomfortable. There is something disturbing about this music and one can notice it when listening with others.

    If one plays the Adagietto at double speed on youtube one can register the melody better, but it feels like heresy. But can be a fun thing to try. But listen to it in normal speed first.

    The music was also in the film "Death in Venice" (1971), an awfully sad story about impossible love and maybe also a lost era in history.

    After the Adagietto comes the Finale, and here the same melody suddenly reoccurs but faster and in a lighter mood. An integration has happened. The journey continues.

    Someone reminded me of this song this morning. Alpha values?


    When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
    A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical
    And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily
    Oh joyfully, playfully watching me
    But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible
    Logical, oh responsible, practical
    And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable
    Oh clinical, oh intellectual, cynical
    There are times when all the world's asleep
    The questions run too deep
    For such a simple man
    Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
    I know it sounds absurd
    Please tell me who I am

    I said, watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical
    Liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
    Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're Acceptable
    Respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable!
    Oh, take it take it yeah
    But at night, when all the world's asleep
    The questions run so deep
    For such a simple man
    Won't you please tell me what we've learned
    I know it sounds absurd
    Please tell me who I am, who I am, who I am, who I am
    'Cause I was feeling so logical
    D-d-digital
    One, two, three, five
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    It's getting unbelievable

    Haven't listened to this in a minute, but it just so happened to be playing through my earbuds when I put them on, even though it wasn't selected on music player or on any apps o.O

    Gamelan is one of the most magical sounds and I was fascinated with Bali as a young child.
