Upon deciding what piece of music to write about it was very difficult to decide, since before taking this class the only classical musician I knew was Beethoven. However, I came across the planets. So I decided to give I try. It just took a play button, which transported me into a world of mystery. As the symphony started with mars I felt as though I was going in a space ship of those that came on the star wars saga. It as the song progressed it felt as though there was a battle in space. Listing to this while in the dark made it easier for me to see what was really happening.Order now
I can see bullets fly by me closer and closer, until this bullet hit me and the ship pieces disperse into space as the song did too. There is a moment of silence when am awaken in to the world of lord of the rings. I see my self at the elves garden standing in the castles balcony looking at the roses. As the piece keeps going I see my black clouds covering the horizon, with darkness and mystery upon. For some reason there is a sense of peace even though at some parts it feels as thought there is a war about to start.
This made me feel like this was countering, like they say after the storm the sun will come out. Next was mercury a dangerous. t first it felt as thought I was running away from someone or something. But it doesn’t feel like I’m running away from something dangerous. As the piece kept going I started to see why I was running, I was running like Bambi in the Disney movie. I can see birds and butterflies, flying on top of my head in circles. I started to run with the birds faster and faster making my war across a big green field.
I don’t know why this image comes to my heard but as keep listening a can see a lot of animals running too. They are jumping across the green field. Jupiter starts and with it I start to remember my grandma back home. I can see her coming in from a long trip. I can see her coming closer to me bringing nothing but a smile to my face. As viola and baritones appear, I can imagine our reunite. This piece only brings image of happy ending, like those of Disney movies. I can see people throwing confetti to the sky, celebrating and parting.
All this happiness is suddenly, wiped away, because with the start of Saturn. I hear something approaching me slowly and slowly. It is not a scary thing coming but it is a sense of realization. I see that the person coming is me but as an old man. I look frail and fragile. I see my self-walking slowly and for each step I take my steps become slower and slower. As the piece progresses, I start to hear bells. This piece just bring sadness into my head all I can think now is that for every day that passes by I am near the end. But the end of what? I don’t understand.
As Saturn comes to the end I see the old me just standing there without moving. It seems as thought the end has come, like the suffering and everything happening in life has finally stop. Uranus stars and I can imagine a giant man walking along a giant sidewalk. In the sidewalk I can see a lot of soldiers marching. There is a feeling of mystery with the piccolo and clarinets. Neptune was the last piece. This was my favorite one because it had something that the rest of the other planets did not and that is a women chorus. This gives a feeling of going into heaven a reaching the divine one.
I can see other people reaching to the heavens as well as the women chorus joins with the bells. The feeling of reaching the end of the symphony, is unforgettable the women chorus starts to become fade out slowly becoming fainter until there is a slight difference between silence and sound. I was left trilled after listening to this symphony. I never felt this way it was an amazing experience feeling as thought I was flying through the cosmos of the universe. However I wonder if there is Pluto. And if there is I’m guessing it would probably give images of unknown and mystery.
