A Marvelous Way Of Communicating Your Feelings
In the following interview printed in 1975, two musicians of different origins explain why music is important.
Werner Torkanowsky was born in Germany and is now the conductor of the New Orleans Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra.
Caroline Stoessinger, born in the United States, is a concert pianist.
Torkanowsky: A lot of qualities are slowly disappearing in the very realistic world we live in.
There is a difference between a standard of living and a quality of living.
Sometimes we lose sight of this.
You can raise your standard. But the quality of life may go down.
Look, nothing is left to the imagination today!
Take, for example, the difference between television and radio.
Now, you see it all.
In the past, you were very creative when you listened to the radio.
The voices were there. But you imagined the scene.
And I'm sure scenes were as different as the people.
Music remains as a way you can exercise your imagination.
Stoessinger: And it's a way of releasing emotions and of keeping the sensitivities alive.
You can cry to music.
The music is not going to laugh at you.
You can feel love. The music is not going to reject you.
The release it offers becomes very valuable since most of us have been taught from childhood to hold back our
feelings -- love, hate, anger, whatever it is.
音乐所提供的这种情绪的发泄变得十分的珍贵，因为我们大多数人从小就被教导要压抑我们的各种情绪 -- 爱、恨、怒
