If we speak from our soul, we can arrest people, amuse them, thrill them or even anger them in no time. Then why are we scared to bare our feelings, to speak what's on our mind? We can speak straight, yet speak kindly.
These thoughts gather me when I listen to Francesco Manfredini's 'Sinfonia in e minor'. The first two minutes of this music arrest me. That's all it takes for this composer to meet my soul.
His music speaks of a certain pathos that is identifiable even after some 300 years. Don't I always say, classical music connects to the soul?
