Abstract:

Personal thoughts on the value of music: “Music  brings  intense,  immediate  pleasures,  it  creates  and  shares  meaning,  it  helps  us  understand  honestly  who  we  are  and  who  we  have  been,  it  establishes  bonds  of  solidarity  and  it  helps  us  understand,  however  incompletely,  what  it  is  to  be  someone  else,  to  have  experiences  we  will,  can never  have.  And  it  does  all  that  in  ways  that  no  other  art  form  can  do”.
