Time for Music Appreciation: The Secret Garden


Today, I am taking time out from my usual topic (about Marinduque) and will talk about music appreciation. Have you taken a music appreciation class? I did a few decades ago during my graduate school days in Chicago, Illinois as one of my non-science electives. It was a subject, that I enjoyed and treasured in my memories. The following two videos are two interpretation of one song. This music is so close to my heart especially when I feel sad and nostalgic.

How can a thing be so beautiful yet depressing to listen? If you have not heard of the Secret Garden( the book, the movie, the animated film etc..), I hope the following two videos will arouse your interest. Enjoy!

This second video is by Ben Chan on his 26th Birthday (08-08-08-what a lucky violinist).


I hope you enjoy the above two videos. Greetings from the GrandPa Blogger!
