Lecture

The Ethics of Aesthetics

Nexus Lecture Daniel Barenboim

Music helps us gain insight into our natures and minds and teaches us to make connections between highly divergent things and thoughts. Daniel Barenboim points out that with music comes ethics. The musician has the ethical duty to render the music in a well-thought-of and deeply felt way, and in his turn, the listener ought to not let himself get distracted too easily. It is the ethics of aesthetics which determines the true beauty of music.
