12 artists explain how they got through CovidNews
In a special edition of Living the Classical Life, Zsolt Bognar extracts life lessons from the likes of Lisa Batiashvili, Julia Fischer, Karen Gomyo, Bejun Mehta, Emanuel Pahud and Christian Gerhaher, who happens to be a trained physician.
A really fascinating and worthwhile set of conversations.
How they got through covid? Like we all did.
No, great artists are suffering in a much more refined, meaningful and beautiful way, because of their more differentiated and sensitive nervous system, careful upbringing, and pertinent avoidance of stimuli which might unbalance an inner life dedicated to beautifying the world for us, normal mortals who merely suffer in a raw, undifferentiated and meaningless way.
Many, many thanks to Zsolt Bognar for this fascinating series!
