Christofori’s Dream

I usually don’t highlight music on my blog, for everyone’s dreams are linked to so many different songs, lyrics, and memories that it’s hard to bring new energy into their lives.

Today’s blog will be different.

Today I will share — and I will ask you for suggestions.

Christofori’s Dream by David Lanz is (one of) my favorite songs. My favorite piano song. My favorite dream song. (It’s a great album, too!)

I know — favorite is a BIG word.

As I get older I get away with “my top three” … my top three foods, my top three movies, my top three desserts. It’s so much easier to have multiple favorites rather than one thing that stands heads and tails above the other.

Back in May of 2021 I wrote a blog asking which three books would you take back or forward into time? Hard, wasn’t it? Good thing I didn’t ask which one book would you bring back — one  book to describe life, civilization, history, and emotions, just wouldn’t work.

At least for me.

But listening to a play list I made on Amazon Prime (more on that later), Cristofori’s Dream came up. Every time I hear that song I stop and listen. It is categorized as New Age, but that’s just huffy puffy. It’s instrumental piano. I would put it in the same category as Chopin’s Nocturne  Op 9 Number 2 in E Flat Major (or the like).

Christofori’s Dream to me is magic, a touch of melancholy mixed in with a universe of possibilities. It is my creative muse in musical form. It gives me calm inspiration, if you know what I mean.

I have other inspirational songs I listen to as well, but there is something about the way David Lanz plays this that makes me want to stop and dream for six minutes.

And I do.

So for today (at least), this is my favorite song.

One fact I found out on this journey — the album was dedicated to (and named after) Bartolomeo Cristofori, who is widely regarded to be the inventor of the piano.

So now. Tell me.

What is your one go-to song? How do you feel when you hear it? What does it make you think of?

I’ll be sure to follow your link and find out what you’re all about.
