In The Beginning

Filed under: beethoven,beginning,classical,music — op131 @ 6:09 pm

In the Beginning was op. 131. For the poor Souls who don’t know what that is, it is Beethoven’s String Quartet in C# minor, opus 131.

Why “In the beginning”? Because the Quartet opens with a Vision of the Heavens, the surreal, totally faithful mystic Vision. Beethoven’s op. 131 is Mankind’s greatest Achievement thus far. Hence “op131.wordpress.com.” I shall begin writing Posts on this Blog with the best possible beginning. I have seen; I wish to share. I have suffered; I wish to tell. I can see further.

Music is the only thing that bridges the Spiritual and the Earthly – it is not to be disrespected. As Music goes to the Dogs with rap and hip-hop and all such things, we go to the Dogs ourselves. ‘Tis time we re-inherited the World’s great European Heritage.

Beethoven is God’s Messenger, not Jesus as is commonly believed.

I shall not belabour the Beethoven point, and shall refer to The Master only occasionally. “Do not take the Lord’s name in vain.”

Goethe said, “Rejoice, supreme Creature of nature, in your ability to re-think her supreme Thought, the highest to which in her Creativity she has risen.” That is powerful.
