So, I have noticed that I have been posting a string of really depressing or sad music these past few weeks, so I thought, to lighten the mood, I would go for a much softer, happy-sounding, piece. La Fille aux Cheveux de Lin by Claude Debussy, fit perfectly with this theme.
It was originally composed for the piano, but I find that the violin version really showcases the beautiful melody of this piece better.
How to say this? This piece is lovely. It's delicate, peaceful. It makes me think of a little girl picking blossoming flowers in a beautiful bed of grass, with her blond hair glistening under the soft sun. And the divine tone of the violin accentuates perfectly the gentle theme.
La Fille aux Cheveux de Lin might be quite a short piece, but it contains such delightful harmonies and a lovely melody that you'll find yourself replaying it over and over again.
