Recently, on his About Last Night blog, Terry Teachout shared about a friend who, during chemotherapy treatment, could only bear to listen to Louis Armstrong and the Goldberg Variations. Terry then asked his readers:
What music do you listen to when the world is way, way too much with you?
For me, four CD’s come to mind:
Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111
Nora Jones’ Come Away With Me
Amy Correia’s Carnival Love
Coldplay’s A Rush of Blood to the Head
What about you? What music do you turn to for solace?
