The Music of Love by Dheera Sujan
Where does timeless, brilliant, romantic music come from? In this program, pianist and astrologer Gary Goldschneider discusses how the music inspired by great amorous passion - pieces such as the theme for Romeo and Juliet, or Wagner's Liebestod - are perfect illustrations of Love's perfect partnership with death and suffering rather than long, happy marriages. Most of the great composers suffered when it came to their own love lives. So we wonder, can great art be created without that essential element of pain?
