7:45 PM performance with philosopher and writer Jos Kessels on an evening organized by the Philosophical Café
In this concert lecture, his argument about Bach’s life lessons will be interspersed with a performance of Preludes and Fugas from the Welltempered Clavier. Jos Kessels reflects on the meaning of the music, how you can listen to it and what she has to say about “the tempered mind”. Music is much more than an abstract pattern of moving sound, it is an expression of ideas, emotions and human attitudes. They naturally form a story, a personal myth, in which the question of “the good life” and its own interpretation plays a central role. If you listen carefully, Bach has a lot to say about that.
