“I do not climb so high…

“I do not climb so high. A long time ago I decided that my universe will be the soul and the heart of man. It is there that I look for nuances of every feeling which I transfer to music as well as I can.”

Frederic Chopin

A Poem by Chopin’s dear friend Adam Mickiewicz that Chopin composed a song for;

Out of my sight! Leave me I beg you!

Out of my heart! I cannot go against you.

Out of my thoughts! No, that ultimate surrender

Our memories could ever render.

As evening shadows lengthen

And stretch their sad imploring arms,

My face will shine brighter in your mind

The further you are from me.

In every season in places close to our hearts,

Where we have shared laughter, tears and glances,

Always and everywhere shall I be with you,

For everywhere I have left a part of my soul.

Adam Mickiewicz

Why do we live such a miserable life that devours us and is only for the purpose of making corpses?

from Chopin’s notebook;

The clocks from the tower of Stuttgart strike the hour in the night. How many become corpses at this moment in the world? Mothers are lost to their children, children to mothers… How much sorrow at this moment over the corpses, and how much consolation! Virtue and vice are the same , they are sisters when corpses. It seems that death is the best action of a human being… and what is worst? Birth as being just the contrary to the good action, therefore I am justified in being angry at having come into this world. Why do we live such a miserable life that devours us and is only for the purpose of making corpses?”

“Emir has the most unique life story of coming to music by chance at his 20, an age considered too late by all classical music standards. Emir has proved that in every rule there is an exception” – Chen Halevi
