Default Philosophy of Arts - Denis Dutton ( 1944-2010 )

PS to Schiller, your quotes reminded me of a great friend of mine, Denis Dutton,we spent many hours discussing and argueing.
His website " Arts and Letters" is one of the most influental critical platforms worldwide regarding the discussion of Arts and Culture.

That was nice to hear first thing this morning :)

I noticed in the comments where someone said, "It is so pure", and I felt the same.

It is also one that I have heard and loved before but never knew the name.

Thank you

I found the movie you spoke of last night but have not watched it yet. I did watch the trailer and I think I understand why you recommended it. I am guessing it touches on the same philosophy as Kieslowski in that people are interconnected. There are interviews with him included in the movies I have seen where he discusses this.

I will look at your friends site.

Those quotes also made me think of some Fahrenheit 451 quotes I looked up a while ago.

Yes,you are spot on , this is about the interconnection of people. Model was Hitchcock's "Family Plot" ,a masterpiece,for me one of his greatest films,and naturally Robert Altman's " Short cuts".

I lost the Kieslowski tapes in a recent move,have to re-buy, will wait for blue ray now.

More soon, "not in the charts" indeed all of this.

PS If you are really into interconnection on a Gargantuan scale then the webworks mysteries by Harry Stephen Keeler are the way to go.

Default Grigory Sokolov

The greatest living pianist here in Prokoviev's finale of the 7th sonata, one of the three of the so called "War Sonatas ",depicting the horrors of World War II..
A breathtaking experience of remorseless rhythmic explosion..

Default Franz Schubert again

This is my favorite Schubert song performed by Lotte Lehmann in a recording from the 1920 ies. Very oldfashioned singing , unique, wonderful.

Any translation to that?

I googled Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (actually I thought it was concerto) #14 and found this...

MOONLIGHT SONATA No.14 - BEETHOVEN Relaxing Piano Classical Music for studying Thunderstorm Study - YouTube

It sounds (and looks) a bit ominous, but its quite relaxing

A translation to the Schubert song ,text by Karl Gottlieb Lappe ( 1773 -1843 ),a now forgotten German romantic poet.
The title "At dusk" is not correct in the below translation. "Abendrot" is when you have the glowing colours of the sun in the evening, literally translated: "Evening Red ".

At dusk

O how beautiful is your world,
Father, when she shines with golden beams!
When your gaze descends
And paints the dust with a shimmering glowing,
When the red, which flashes in the clouds,
Sinks into my quiet window!

How could I complain, how could I be afraid?
How could anything ever be amiss between you and me?
No, I will carry in my breast
Your Heaven for all times.
And this heart, before it breaks down,
Shall drink in the glow and the light.

The moonlight is very atmospheric....
