Lost music April 29, 2007

Posted by dorigo in Art, music, news.

We all lose when an artist of the caliber of Mstislav Rostropovich passes away. He was 80, and played the Cello like nobody. The Cello is a wonderful instrument, one that very few artists get to master to perfection. But Rostropovich was not only a Cello player: he was a composer and a director of Orchestra. And an opposer of the regime, who fled Russia in 1974.

Sad news. Also before I forget, I should mention that I just finished reading (in English “translation”) a delightful book by the Italian author Umberto Eco, and reviewed it on my new wordpress blog. The connection to physics is in the (very old) theory of sympathy as an explanation for the mystery of force.
