About simplicity. Brahms‘ Händel-Variations for piano.

Brahms: Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Händel in B flat major, op. 24
Listen to Brahms' Händel-Variations.
I find in it: simplicity.
Simplicity in its expression
which makes it unmissably expressive.
I find truth in it.
Truth in expression.

The music flows from the heart
and goes to the heart.
''Von Herzen -
möge es wieder zu Herzen gehen''
as Beethoven wrote to his Missa solemnis.
Immensely joyful this music is but also
very dramatic, full of sadness, lamenting,
comforting and peaceful.

I see the sea in front of me in all
its different colours and depths
when I listen to this music.

I find God in it.
And myself.
The whole world,
like a shimmering caleidoscope.

Music is more than just entertainment.
Music teaches me about God, life
and myself .
Music is about the essence.
Existential.
It lets me connect to my inner fountain.

Simplicity.

I believe
in the end
everything is very simple.
If we dare 
to listen to our soul. 
There lies all truth.
Be free, my friend.
