Do you have notebooks filled with poetry, or spend rainy days curled up with a book? Are you overcome by the beauty of a sunset? Are you content to be alone, to sit surrounded by nature and lose yourself in thought? Your musical key signature might be D-flat major – The Free Spirit.
Are you alert from the moment you wake in the morning? Do you move with feline grace, Are you aware of every sound and motion around you? Are you resilient and prepared? Do you have a fierce temper but put yourself in the line of fire for your loved ones? Can you endure any trial? You might be F minor – The Fighter
Each weeknight CBC—Radio Canada host, Paolo Pietropaolo narrates a series of short, four-minute musical segments linking classical music key signatures to popular character types from our favorite stories: The Contrarian, Miss Congeniality, The Faded Beauty, The Eccentric, The Handsome Rogue are just a few examples of musical personalities.
Gentlemen, are you a Prince Charming in E-major, or a Tortured Genius in C minor? Perhaps you’re the Trusty Sidekick type in G major, or maybe even a Dark Romantic in B minor.
Ladies, are you the Artist in B major, or a Woman of Mystery in C-sharp minor? Are you the Good Woman in A-flat major, or the Ice Queen in D minor?
Pietropaolo’s smooth but heavily exaggerated oration of each musical key signature is a beautiful yet funny way to bring music to life.
