Musical Interpretation: Piano Concerto No. 2 in c minor (2nd mov.) - by Sergei Rachmaninoff

Such is the feeling and passion of the musical score
Brought to life, one story built upon the last

One moment a calming, babbling brook lulling a baby to sleep
The next a sweeping dance into the arms of your star-crossed lover
Yet another a left-handed triplet accompanied by right-handed melodic bliss
As swell after swell of sound waves hit the shores of our auditory perception
We are reminded of a distant memory, which somehow self-transforms in a sudden

A whirring bee in a new forest, stuck in unfamiliar honey
And while lying there, he becomes transfixed by the blue of the bluest sky
By the warmth of the afternoon sun
By the lyrical songs of two courting birds in a nearby tree

And as the scene comes to a close
The sweet nectar of the foreign place somehow becomes a hazy blur
As he drifts off into euphoric slumber
