« La Gaieté Musicale » – CLÉMENT ROSSET

Compte tenu du rôle central qu’y jouent la jubilation et l’expérience musicale, celle-là toujours liée chez Nietzsche à celle-ci, la crédibilité de la pensée nietzschéenne apparaît comme tributaire de la crédibilité d’une conception de la musique dont La Naissance de la tragédie présente une ébauche déjà à certains égards définitive.

É preciso aprender a amar – Nietzsche

EIS O QUE SUCEDE conosco na música: primeiro temos que aprender a ouvir uma figura, uma melodia, a detectá-la, distingui-la, isolando-a e demarcando-a como uma vida em si; então é necessário empenho e boa vontade para suportá-la, não obstante sua estranheza, usar de paciência com seu olhar e sua expressão, de brandura c om o… Continue lendo É preciso aprender a amar – Nietzsche
