The Forum and LSE Arts public discussion

Music and the Absolute

Date: Monday 6 February 2017
Time: 6:30-8pm
Speakers: Nimrod Borenstein, Adrian Moore, Clelia Iruzun (pianist)

In the film Amadeus, Mozart remarks that ‘his composition has the exact amount of notes’, hinting at some kind of Absolute. For contemporary composer Nimrod Borenstein, there is only one solution: the right number of notes at the right place, as if his music had always existed. Are there philosophical arguments that support such claims? We bring together a composer, a pianist, a piano, and a philosopher to explore this question.
