Classical Notes

Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours!

Posted at 2:27 PM on February 4, 2007 by Alison Young

Imagine a romantic, candle-lit dinner with the one you love. The food is scrumptious, the wine is just perfect, and the vibes are clicking. But something's missing. Ah, yes, the music! Call me biased since I'm an addict and can’t imagine my life without a sound track, but I know you'll agree that Valentine’s Day just isn't right without a little love song or mood music to spice up the moment.

You can let the experts step up to the plate and help you out with that part. My colleagues and I at Classical Minnesota Public Radio have picked out fourteen of our favorite classical pieces that we feel plumb the depths of love and romance. The coolest part is that we have made these pieces available to you to send in a Classical Love Notes e-card to anyone on your Valentine's card list. Trust me, nothing is more sophisticated and classy than a little Mahler, Canteloube or Puccini. And I speak from experience: the right music at the right time won over my heart!
