Bliss out with a beautiful melody in this installmentof '10 Pieces of Music That Can Change Your Life.'

The Adagio from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto

While we’re all dreamy with Mozart’s music, let’s just stay here a while and bask in the second movement of his Clarinet Concerto. I’m too verklempt to write. Just take a listen . . .


(Clarinet soloist Robert Marcellus with the Cleveland Orchestra conducted by George Szell)

How this music can change your life: It affirms that a single beautiful melody is truly all it takes to make the world a better place.
