At different times in my life I've been absorbed by rock, jazz, and classical music. But I rarely mention music in this blog. Let me play you a passage from one of my favorite classical pieces, Beethoven’s emotional and powerful 7th symphony. The 2nd movement is the part that really gets me. The first minute of it is so quiet that you need to turn the volume up in order to hear it.
Here's another version, with a faster tempo. I think it changes the entire attitude of the piece and reduces the impact.
