Boethius' Dangerous Music

This is Daniel Barenboim's first of this year's series of five Reith Lectures. It is in the very best tradition of these lectures, and is compelling, but will it reach the ears of those who need to listen to him? If music is inherently sensous (and why Boethius considered it so dangerous), Barenboim's music is much more. He will be deeply thought-provoking and inspirational for all who - as Barenboim says - not only listen but also hear. When Barenboim speaks, he draws the audience into a new world, and there are still four more lectures to go. Enchanting and heady stuff.

Truly Enlightening

With a character as warm as his music Daniel Barenboim opens the mind through the ears. His style is anecdotal, passionate and friendly. As we travel through the major cities that have shaped his life, we learn, marvel and ponder. I agree with much of what he points out and have learned a lot. This pod cast allowed me to rediscover the philosophy of music, how music acts as a critical dialogue punctuating social and historical changes, and most importantly reminded me that an increasing number of people do not engage their ears when they listen to music! Daniel is an immensely interesting, strongly opinionated, and mellifluous man. I wait painfully for the next installment. Thanks to the BBC for making this available, get some Reith lecture archive output here please!!

Just what's needed!

I would like to second what the other commentators have said and also ask for a Reith Lecture archive...they are a creative, enlightening and important tradition.
