#103 The Smell of Contemplation

Quiet, rest. This piece of music wants nothing more. It's a funeral music but it's not sad music. It's healing, reuniting. Touching.

This 1974 recording is from The Otto Klemperer Memorial Concert in London. Kubelík keeps very slow tempo, so you can feel how the music is interlaced. The intervals in the beginning are dazing.

Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Work: Masonic Funeral Music
Recording: New Philharmonia Orchestra, Rafael Kubelík
