Ariel Sharon had a daily need for Bachmain
I met the late Israeli leader, who died today, on three or four occasions and have little to add to his political biography. I was, however, surprised to discover that this military man and farmer had a daily need for the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. He would play some each morning for several minutes before starting work.
Draw no conclusions from this, except as a testament to the penetrative power of great music.
