I play classical piano and find communing
with Bach, Chopin, Mozart, Debussy, to
name a few, each day is essential to my well
being. If I don't play on piano, I listen to recordings.

IG ! these posts are excellent additions to the subject of increasing
brain activity. I see musical ability as a gift. your fortunate to have it.
( replicate- play)

a friend many years ago , was in a coma due to an auto accident. when he
awoke from the coma, he remembered nothing (little) could barely speak.
however , he was an musician in life. soon he remembered scores, piano,
and percussion - he was an drummer by trade craft. the more he played, the better his cognitive skills improved. ( memory - speech )

it's official ... this is your thread now. :mrgreen:



later, Severe depression and music therapy. ( PTSD ) other.

ricardo,

Haha...no, it's your thread but where I see music, I gravitate...I'll
contribute when spirit moves me.

Kind of a coincidence that I was listening to part of
Rachmaninoff's 2nd piano concerto as I have
been doing since I was a wee one...I learned to hum
it before I started piano lessons and would become
extremely emotional. I later learned of Rachmaninoff's
bouts with depression and how this piece related.

I named a kitty o mine Rachmaninoff and he died
on Rachmaninoff's birthday, which was odd. I wrote a
poem about it.


Anyway, I found this link and it isn't a good video at all
but sort of explains some things. The entire composition
is well worth listening to. Several modern pieces have
been taken from it. Full Moon and Empty Arms being one.

ms obama on twitter. -mo ? she looked smoking hot.( hairdo)
sorry. can i say that. ? anywho, shes networked w/ the vp bidens wife
to form an 'collective ' for ; medical research and health resources for veterens. (vets) priority: ptsd and head /taumatic brain injury. rock on ! :dance:

speaking of which gabby the congresswomen from az is said to use music therapy
(singing) (music) to improve her well being. reports are encouraging.

i see the association to rac and depression ( feel it, but why drawn to it ?)
emotional can mean many things. as a kid ,some of his work , would sound scary. he wrote it while ' he ' was depressed. sorry about kat.

i understand his work is fairly difficult to play. (high degree of skill.)

ricardo,

How are you this morning? No, that is not the
composition that Rachmaninoff dedicated to
Dr. Dahl that helped with his depression. I will post
that one now. But the "coincidence" ;) of the
Prelude that you posted is that it's one of my favorites
to play on piano and I played it about 3 hours
ago. Funny I called my kitty, Rachi

This is the first movement of the 2nd Piano Concerto
if anyone cares to listen they can find the last movements
on the side.

composer ludwig van beethoven knew music before becoming deaf. contrary
to populapopular myth, he was completely deaf late in life.

so, this has an implication for further study as to wellness and his musical ability.
was this a consequence of his playing, composing or leaning his head on the piano
to feel (hear notes) ?

not an improbable senario for resultant traumatic head injuries.
for deaf people or reduced hearing individuals... does vibrational
/ direct contact, allow deaf people to feel the notes(music) ?

can other tactile receptive parts of the body interface w/ and perform similar function of the auditory mosaic , that the brain can interpret ? :think:
