Harmony of the Spheres

Keyser Söze would never admit to being a sentimental type, cheap much less a wuss, case but Keyser Söze does have to confess that sometimes Keyser Söze’s eyes are made to water by music (though anyone repeating this would be subject to being “terminated with extreme prejudice”). And it has to be said that the most beautiful melody conceived of by the mind of man comes from the last movement of Brahm’s First Symphony. Naturally, sickness being a true child of his fin-de-siècle times, Brahms had to go and ruin the vibe by sticking in a bunch of pointless rambling all around it (sort of like Mahler on sedatives). Nonetheless, if the Lord God hummed to Himself, this is what it would sound like.
