“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind, and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”

About Music
by Maya

Please allow me to call you my friends because you are all welcomed to my site as such. It really doesn’t matter what brought you here. Coincidence, curiosity, or search for that special “something”…

Whatever it is, no doubt it is surely certain “something” I would like to put here on a pedestal. Music.

Music is powerful, it is a balm, it can express all possible moods and feelings, and life without it would be like a rose without its flower and leaves, just a dry stick with thorns left.
Every nation has its very own music, but this one, Russia, due to its special history and superior inherited talent comes across as somewhat more significant.

I bet that all of you felt the power of music at any given time, have memories associated with it so strong that when you hear it, reminiscence presents itself momentarily.

A well-known fact is that hardship makes one stronger, and also more appreciative of all good. Hardship and suffering created great melodies, full of sadness, deep emotions, but also of hope and happiness.
I’ll pick, which it is not easy because actually, from many kinds of music deserving to be picked how beautiful it is, simply the one, I like best and do hope that you visit often to listen and like it as well.

I’ll translate all text in the best manner I can, but you must understand when there are rhymes in lyrics, I can’t keep those, as precise, so the translation is just to understand, of course. Still, your ear would tell you and you could enjoy listening to another language. If you’ll have any questions, feel free to ask…

After all, this is all for music lovers, for those who love and might still discover another kind of music and also for those who are sick from so many no-talents singing in such a way that my cat is straining her ears when she hears them considering them a competition. I know its times, but who could listen to that…

Therefore, now, please welcome to my world of music!
Well, after reading below a few beautiful says about music from those who know the best.

“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music”
Sergei Rachmaninov

“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks, and invents.”
Ludwig van Beethoven

“Music does bring people together.  It allows us to experience the same emotions.  People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit.  No matter what language we speak, what color we are,  the form of our politics or the expression of our love and    our faith, music proves: We are the same.”
John Denver


And last, few more words from me…

I do love music. I inherited my singing talent after my Russian mother and as a child and student, I always performed at all school celebrations, etc…
I was supposed to study singing… well, communists at those times did not support real talents, plus we were not communism approving family… However, those times are gone, but my love for music remained.
I am enclosing here one song from one of my beloved singers,
Dmitri Hvorostovsky called also a bariton of the century, whom Russia lost several years ago due to brain cancer.
Endless thousands of music lovers will miss him forever as I would as well.
