Just finished a film-portrait of the famous Young conductor Yannick Nezet-Seguin(Rotterdam Symphonic Orchestra, MET, London Symphonic Orchestra, etc…). And he said in the film, something, that I’ve never realized. I share those words:
The way I understand it, like everything else, humans are created in balance.
There’s always a yin and a yang. There’s always black and white, always a positive and a negative.
There’s hope and there’s doubt. And since I’m someone who’s been greatly blessed in life, extremely happy and fundamentally optimistic,
I often wonder why I’m so attracted to works that deal with the end of life, with death, suffering and sadness?
