i grew up in iran where almost all western music is illegal. you can maybe get your hands on some bootleg tapes, but concerts are definitely out of question. the symphony is alive + well though and i went to many classical concerts as a child. years later, i've made a circle back.
been harrrrd core enjoying classical music in the morning as the sun comes up in my studio while writing or drawing. sets a romantic sort of tone and i take my work more seriously somehow with this type of sound in the background. better focus. listen to it on my walks too. intense love!
i made a playlist of some of the pieces i revisit most.
