Claire's Tumblr

I'm a geek, musician, student, writer, reader, and scribbler.

This tumblr is a mad collection of my art, my life, my hopeful-travels, and all of the wonderfully nerdy things therein!

Say hello! I promise, I don't bite, and I enjoy making new friends whenever I can!

Moments Musicaux, Op. 94, D 780 No. 3 | Composed By: Franz SchubertPerformed By: Budapest Strings

Claire posted a Dvorak song, stating that it was her in song form. I immediately thought of this song, as I remember the first time I heard this Schubert piece, I decided that it sounded like me if I were a song. It’s short but holds a wide range of emotion. It’s traditionally played on piano (though most of Schubert’s pieces for made for strings, as I recall… then they were converted to piano arrangements post mortem), but hearing it played on strings is far more feathery.

At that, do you have a song that is YOU in song form?

This is a fantastic idea, people! Answer the question, if you’ve got a song!

(And, ugh, beautiful song choice Any!)

Because listening to Dvorak’s American Quartet is conducive to studying for finals. 

This is me, in song form.

On one stave, for a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings. If I imagined that I could have created, even conceived the piece, I am quite certain that the excess of excitement and earth-shattering experience would have driven me out of my mind.
