The Emperor Waltz by Johann Strauss Jr. also known as “The Waltz King”, from Vienna, Austria is a piece of classical music that epitomizes the light, joyful, pleasant and cheerful, ideal type state of emotions of a human being. It also, in a way, epitomizes the word the associated Viennese had for that state of being, gemütlich, which meant a state of warmth, friendliness and good cheer; cozy, well-being and happiness, and benevolence. That special feeling this music gives is delightful, specifically the major melody at 38 seconds in. This is the same man who wrote the super famous waltz “The Blue Danube” and a list of other major pieces of classical music. And it is this excellent set of things that we should imbue into the world today, with liberty, Reason, productiveness, self-esteem and kindness. When I think of my ideal home, I imagine this music playing there. Beautiful music of an ideal world. Enjoy!
