Classical Music Pieces That Make You Feel Things

Music is said to be a universal language. It speaks to you in many ways. Emotionally, we rely on music when we don’t know how to convey what we feel. We would play that hard bass and loud lyrics when we want to scream our heart out. When we feel sad, we wallow it more when the lyrics describe what we feel. There are so many genres of music that help us do these things, even classical music pieces.

Classical Music Pieces That Make You Feel Things

Most people believe that classical music is only good for studying. I guess it makes sense since it doesn’t really have any lyrics that you can sing along to. However, if you get immersed in the way the orchestra plays, you can see how emotion-evoking some pieces would be.

Classical music is symphonies made in the earlier centuries. You would most likely know about the famous Mozart or Beethoven as one of the most notable ones among others. Although I am not an expert in music, I found out how this can affect my mood.

Without having any background check on what it means or what message it’s supposed to have, I have heard how classical music can trigger some of my mood. I may not know much about music, but it can make you feel things when you close your eyes.

Beethoven’s Symphony 5 in C Minor, Op. 67

You must be familiar with its classic intro. You already know what emotion it evokes when you hear it, “Dun dun dununnnn.”

With its strong entry, you can see how the piece lets you feel the intense feelings. More on strong feeling and excitement. You can feel the thrill all throughout the piece.

Edward Elgar’s Salut d’amour, Op.12

Salut d’amour means love letter. Just with its meaning, you would be able to feel like you’re in love with this piece. With its gentle flow, the piano accompaniment made the piece more romantic than it is with violin alone. The piano also contributed to the playful vibe of the piece. This has been my favorite when writing about love.

Debussy’s Claire de Lune

This piece makes you feel hopeful. As if you’re facing another bright day after braving a storm from yesterday. It doesn’t sound too happy nor too sad. It makes you feel like you’re brand new.

Although you can already imagine how a classical piece would feel, Bach’s Air on a G String will make you feel like you’re floating in the air. With its airy sound and its relaxing and gentle accompaniment, you can feel light just the moment you hear this starts playing.

Chopin’s Nocturne, Op. 9 No. 2

You may have heard this piece before. May it be in fancy restaurants or such, this piece would be fitting in those settings. It sounds fancy. Though much classical music fits the fancy settings, this one is more famous.

Why try listening to classical music?

There have already been different studies of how classical music can help your concentration. That’s how people got to know how helpful it is when studying.

Here are other benefits of listening to this type of music:

  1. Lowers blood pressure
  2. Reduce stress level
  3. Helps you sleep better
  4. Boosts memory
  5. Improves brainpower
  6. Helps you express your emotions

More than the mental benefits of classical music, it can also trigger different emotions within us. We just have to let the music sink in and let it take us to another world. Just as any other art, classical music doesn’t give you any specific interpretations. It can be interpreted by anyone into anything they please. It will also make you feel things beyond the lyrics.
