The Question of the Week is posted every Sunday and will consist of a question followed by my answer and explanation to the same. Some questions will only require a simple answer that could potentially be followed by an explanation. Many questions will be writer oriented, but not all. Everyone is encouraged to answer in the comments and discussions/follow up questions are more than welcome!
What’s your favorite musical instrument?
I grew up playing piano, but for a time I did play violin. The former (despite potential arthritic fingers) I can still manage reasonably well, but latter, alas, I’ve forgotten. I wish I remembered though for the strings are my favorite family and the cello is my favorite instrument.
Around 2:20 starts the most beautiful passage of music I’ve ever heard and it’s due to the strings. This is one of the songs that can and will consistently make me cry, but I’ll elaborate on that in another question.
This one starts with shivering strings and leaves you in a chill. James Horner is one of my favorite American composers, Nobuo Uematsu (the composer of the first), of course, being my favorite one of all time.
What’s your favorite musical instrument or instruments? And do you have a song/songs that best exemplify why you have that love?
I look forward to your answers in the comments!
