17. Talking Music by Olga Jegunova - on friendship
Fears, dreams and relationships in music and philosophy.
The 4th episode of podcast “Talking music by Olga Jegunova” is about friendship.
You may wonder why a podcast on classical music suddenly touches upon a relationship theme? Plato said that music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything. Indeed, music is about life as everything that we do and think, fear and dream, has already been expressed through music. Friendship amongst it, of course. Not to mention the recent Harvard research saying that happiness is all about successful relationships. Also, there are great examples of strong friendships in music, such as between Mozart and Haydn, Debussy and Satie, Brahms and Schumann, ravel and Gershwin, Mahler and Strauss. But today’s episode is fully dedicated to the main expert of friendship, a Roman philosopher Cicero.
