Classical Music Open 'n Listen

Many people find in music the perfect way of relaxing. But each of those individuals will think of a different style of music to find peace with themselves and keep their body calm. However, generally speaking, classical music usually works for everyone.

Canon in D Major is the best known work of the German composer of baroque music Johann Pachelbel. Pachelbel composed it around 1680.

This Canon is well known for the harmonious progression of stringed instruments, which have made it one of the most used pieces in contemporary academic music. In fact, it is often listened in wedding celebrations. However, it is a very simple piece of music, with no increases or decreases in rhythm, and in its original version is played by just three violins playing on the background melody of a bass.

Piano Sonata No. 14 in C♯ minor "Quasi una fantasia", Op. 27, No. 2 was written by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1801 and published in 1802 dedicating it to his pupil, Countess Giulietta Guicciardi. It is one of the author's most famous works.

Beethoven's pupil, Carl Czerny, called it "a night scene, in which a pitiful ghostly voice rings in the distance." In 1832, five years after Beethoven's death, Ludwig Rellstab, a German music critic, likened the effect of the first movement to that of moonlight shining upon Lake Lucerne. As a consequence, the name "Moonlight Sonata" became popular and started being used in German and English publications.
