Max Richter.

I just don't understand,

Am I listening to nothing?

The notes are there

Softly created by the instruments,

But is there a tune?

I listen and the harmony is there,

Sailing through the ether

Into my body and soul,

Why should I like it?

It is like a drug though,

I just cannot get enough of it.

It stirs my soul,

Takes my Spirit to places,

Places it and I have never been.

So many different types of music

Is mine to enjoy,

But I keep on coming back

To the solace that I get from this composer,

This new composer I have found,

This man called Max Richter.

        Even the NHS couldn't help him. Makes me want to listen to more of his music him again - Max Richter that is.

        The music captures the horror and devastation of Sarajevo The high pitched wail of sorrow and despair .
