Ravel’s Bolero

  • Pin it

Yep, you’re reading that right! And I plan on convincing you that you actually need a break from all that pop’n breezy easy music! With an impressive, cascading, flawless, limitless, just perfect Bolero by Ravel; because this is exactly what you need! Because this week’s break is special. It’s July’s last weekend, let’s make the best of it!

Ravel’s Bolero is one of the pieces of music I find to be irresistibly moving, strong and engaging. It’s like a living thing taking hold of me. I can’t listen to it and keep calm. I can’t even keep my eyes open: I just close them and let my imagination fly (quite like Mr Bean playing Chariots of Fire at the keyboard for the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics 2012! – yep, I watched it! Wink).

Ready? It’s on for about 7 minutes, it’ll give you plenty of time to dream! Just close your eyes, feel this perfect music within you and… just slide! (Fight Club, anyone?)

LOL! This is way funny for a Dutch! I saw the costumes of orchestra members and I just knew it! It is none other than André Rieu!

So I like to add this man and his approach brought classical music back to a broader audience. First in his own country and then world wide. We here are really convinced André is a famous Dutch.

I just love this, thanks for posting :) <3
