Why classical music works

Everyone can understand music

Benjamin Zander explains in this TED talk why everyone is able to understand music. Even if they consider themselfs unmusical.

He also explains why looping chord progressions in contemporary music is so satisfying. For that he explains how Chopins Prelude in Em works. This piece feels like a little journey from start to end. And the end is exceptional satisfying. It’s all about tension and release.

Own attempt

This talk was so inspiring that I have to learn Chopins Prelude in Em myself.
