50 things to do before you die: go to a classical concert

orchestraI come from a family of music lovers; my granny was a concert pianist and my great-grandfather a conductor and composer. Consequently, I was introduced to the joys of classical music when I was very young and although in my teens and early twenties I rebelled against this sound and preferred to listen to pop, rock and indie I fell back in love with classical music when I lived with my brother who is nuts about it.

The first concert he took me to was a concert by a well-known British composer, Edward Elgar, and I have to say that I listen to a part of this orchestral work at least once a month. My favourite part is called ‘Nimrod’ and if you want to check it out, then please click here.

Getting back to the point, if you haven’t been to a classical concert with a full orchestra, I would wholeheartedly recommend it. Moreover, if you do go, try to close your eyes when you are listening so you can really concentrate on the beauty of the sound rather than thinking about the musicians or the musical instruments. Finally, in Málaga, this is an easy goal to achieve as there are tons of places that offer classical music concerts.
