My favorite musical composition is from Mozart.  “Lacrimosa” is absolutely incredible, a powerful piece that I first listened to as an elementary student.  During music class, we watched the spectacular film “Amadeus” on a sunny, opulent Thursday afternoon.  Its powerful subtext, elegant arrangement, and overpowering harmonies evoke the same amazing awakening that I felt so many years ago.  It was the first piece that obiliterated those silly, small-town notions about classical music being for “squares” and it changed the way I interpreted all genres of music.  This tour-de-force of raw human emotion is the perfect accompanying piece to any activity that demands laser-like focus and concentration and sometimes, it helps break up the repetitive feeling of isolation. Although it sounds absolutely divine with a pair of Beats headphones, this amazing gift will be conveyed through any auditorial vessel. Enjoy.
