The Power of Music

January 8, 2010 at 2:05 AM

 I'll let the video do most of the talking.  This is part of why I believe classical music is still so relevant in today's culture.


I believe this quartet is playing at a mental hospital in Paris:

"Sortir la musique classique des salles de concerts feutrées, la faire venir là où elle n'est généralement pas entendue, tel est le parti pris de Fugues. Pour ce premier épisode, rencontre entre le célèbre hôpital psychiatrique Saint Anne, à proximité de Paris et Beethoven, dans une de ses dernières compositions, la Grande Fugue, ici interprétée par le Quatuor Diotima, écrite à la frontière entre la folie et la mort."

 So the translation service on Google returned:

"Out classical music concert halls felted, bring her where she is not generally understood, is the bias of Fugues. For this first episode, encounter the famous St. Anne psychiatric hospital, near Paris and Beethoven, in one of his last compositions, the Great Fugue, performed by the Quatuor Diotima, written at the border between madness and death."
