It's A Mad, Mad World, Indeed...

March 29, 2009 20:23

I post this particular article not as a political discussion springboard, but as a observation as to how certain political situations can rob the young performer of certain human freedoms and to point out how history, if not dealt with in a civil and logically academic manner, can tend to create problems in the future for all. Undeniable and horrific as the Holocaust was, it will always be a focal point of how the evils of men can ultimately effect the future generations to come. I invite your comments, but please be aware of the delicate nature of the subject matter at hand. History affects us more than we may realize, and it is something that I always teach my students in order to make them better interpreters of music and help them understand the world around them today.
