I usually listen to western classical music at work. The music shuts out people and my mundane surroundings. People disturb me a lot lesser when they see me at my desk with headphones on, oblivious to the world around. Thank God for talented composers like Bach, or Faure. Though I dont understand the pieces and movements much, I follow the music keenly and its a pleasure to listen to famous classical music peices.
One of my favourites is Gabriel Faure. Been listening to him all the time these days. He was a French composer in the early 20th century and wrote some wonderful pieces of music. He is a brilliant, unsung genius. One of his very best is this piece called Pavane (that's of course my opinion). Its a slow moving piece and is the most delightful piece of music I've ever heard (and I've heard a lot of classical music).
PS: If anybody wants to hear this piece, drop me a line. I will be glad to mail you the mp3. Believe me, it will make a music lover out of you.
