I wanted this post to be a little more whimsical and less centric to my thoughts and life experiences, therefore the topic of music came to mind. I adore the manner in which it unites strangers, inspires nostalgia and transports it’s listener to another country, time and era.
If I were to choose two genres of music to listen to for the rest of my life, it’d be classical and Jazz. Without ado, here are a few personal ‘classical’ favourites – some of which mark memories of childhood, whilst others were discovered during adolescence and my wonderfully independant twenties; essentially combining to create a soundtrack of my life.
