This summer, Daniel Barenboim launched a new YouTube channel. “I will talk about music – about pieces close to my heart, about pieces which I hope will interest you – and other subjects that preoccupy me, some social and some political, all subjects that have to do with the human being,” says Barenboim
In one of the first eposides, Daniel Barenboim describes music as different from human interaction through speech. If two people cross talk each other, then neither understands the other. Conversation only works if one talks and one listens and then switch roles. In music, the conversation isn’t verbal, so each participant’s voice is heard and understood at the same time.
