14. Gustav Mahler - Symphony No.9 in D-major - IV, Adagio


One week ago, Cade Bengart confessed,
“I’m not an avid classical music listener."
Thus Cade rhetorically made his claim - 
that this is “the most beautiful piece
[he’s] ever heard” -  appear credible
to his audience of strangers. 

Two days later, Charles Frizzel encouraged Cade 
to try 5th Adagietto and 6th Andante as well.
There's no way to tell as of now if Cade
took this advice, since a reply
to Mr. Frizzel’s gesture of good will
and shared fandom has yet to be recorded.
