One of my friends sent me this video a couple of days ago and it really moved me. It reminded me of the joy that my grandad, who sadly passed away a few years ago after having alzheimers, got whenever my gran played him his favourite tune – Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto (he loved a bit of Classic FM!).
No matter how far down the road my papa was with alzheimers, hearing that song always made his face light up. It’s a pretty good reminder of the power of music. I wonder if The Smiths or Mogwai tunes will spark a similar reaction from me one day!
