BUY Coreg ONLINE WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION, I just finished reading Milan Kundera's thought-provoking book, Testaments Betrayed, and have been mulling over some of the interesting points he makes about how an artist's wishes regarding his work are often ignored and misinterpreted.

Although Kundera uses many examples throughout history, one main theme that pervades his essay is the story of Franz Kafka and Max Brod. Coreg over the counter, Kafka, as most people may know, where can i buy cheapest Coreg online, Real brand Coreg online, left explicit instructions with his friend, Brod, kjøpe Coreg på nett, köpa Coreg online, Coreg samples, to destroy his works upon his death. He did not ask for all of his works to be destroyed, buy Coreg without a prescription, Order Coreg online overnight delivery no prescription, but left a clear list - he wanted his personal writings, letters, australia, uk, us, usa, Online buy Coreg without a prescription, and diaries as well as stories and novels that he felt were not successfully written to be destroyed. Instead, where to buy Coreg, Ordering Coreg online, Brod believed in his friend's genius and had all of Kafka's works and private papers published after his death and became the greatest proponent of his friend's art. What we know of Kafka today - his works, comprar en línea Coreg, comprar Coreg baratos, Buy Coreg from mexico, his life, the resulting Kafkology myths - are a result of Max Brod's efforts, Coreg price, coupon. Thus, the fundamental question: Did Brod do the right thing or did he betray the artistic intentions of his friend, BUY Coreg ONLINE WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION. Purchase Coreg online, Many have argued that though Brod's actions may have been flawed, he nevertheless provided the world with the discovery of Kafka, purchase Coreg, Buy Coreg from canada, and that this alone more than made up for any kind of betrayal.

"Brod the enigma. He was guided by no ulterior motive, buy cheap Coreg no rx, Where can i order Coreg without prescription, only by the spirit of justice; he loved him for the essential, for his art, buy Coreg ONLINE WITHOUT prescription. Buy Coreg no prescription, But he did not understand that art....Brod understood cubism as little as he understood Kafka and Janacek. Doing his best to free them from their social isolation, order Coreg online c.o.d, Buy Coreg without prescription, he confirmed their aesthetic aloneness. BUY Coreg ONLINE WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION, The real meaning of his devotion to them was: even a person who loved them, and was thus most disposed to understand them, was alien to their art." (Testaments Betrayed, p. 253)

I am not a composer, japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, Buy Coreg online cod, poet, or novelist - I cannot imagine what I would feel about such a situation, rx free Coreg. Where to buy Coreg, But as a performer, I believe that this issue is important, where can i order Coreg without prescription. Buy cheap Coreg no rx, I have asked my friends who are writers and composers what their thoughts were on this, and they unanimously agreed that an artist's aesthetic concepts and wishes regarding his creations are absolute, buy no prescription Coreg online. Online buy Coreg without a prescription, And yet, in both the literary and music worlds, Coreg trusted pharmacy reviews, Purchase Coreg, we have clearly seen so many examples of how an artist's wishes or intentions are ignored. There are concerts that promote the first performances of previously unpublished or abandoned material from a composer's work and new recordings of previously unpublished fragments, BUY Coreg ONLINE WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION. New revised editions with material that the author or composer chose to remove are added back in for "authenticity." I have never quite understood this concept - why do we perform a work or fragment that the composer himself clearly deemed not suitable for performance and either removed or abandoned, online buying Coreg hcl. Real brand Coreg online, Why - 200 years after a composer's death, when he no longer has the ability to speak up or protest - do we insist on pulling every possible scrap from his personal, fast shipping Coreg, Order Coreg online c.o.d, private life as well as from his pile of discarded, incomplete works and shine a bright light onto it like some kind of novelty, Coreg price, coupon. Order Coreg no prescription, Would a composer want us to publicly perform fragments of works that he had completely abandoned. Would an author want excerpts and fragments of ideas he had written in his private journals, order Coreg from mexican pharmacy, notes that were meant only for his eyes, to be published?

It reminds me of a conversation I once had with a well-known musician, who shall remain nameless. BUY Coreg ONLINE WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION, We were discussing Mozart's works and he told me that he thought it was very important to go to Austria and see and study the desk, writing instrument, and shoes Mozart wore and used as he wrote a certain piece (I kid you not) because it helps us to play his music better. This same musician also said that he didn't believe one could perform Bach unless one was German. Now, I strongly disagreed with both of these statements and very vehemently told him so. His way of thinking represents the way some people narrow their view or focus in the hopes of finding a deeper understanding or meaning. But they fail to consider the possibility that taking the exact opposite action and broadening their view could actually provide them with the meaningful perspective they're searching for.

Even as I passionately argued against his views, this musician insisted that he was right in what he said because he truly "loved" and "revered" Bach and Mozart, and felt that he was "protecting" their authentic values. He believed that we must leave no stone unturned in analyzing their lives, and that every scrap of paper - a fragment tossed out into the trash, or a private note that was only meant for the recipient's eyes - was important in preserving and understanding the genius of their art, BUY Coreg ONLINE WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION. But by insisting that Bach could only be played by Germans, he inadvertently limits the Bach that he loves so much to being an artist of only one country, when his artistic legacy belongs to a perspective and history much larger and greater than that. I was also left thinking about what Mozart would say if he knew people were looking at his shoes to figure out how to interpret his seems, in many ways, that the spirit of Max Brod continues to live on.

Do artists have any control or authority over the legacy they ultimately leave behind. In what ways do we misconstrue or warp an artist's original aesthetic conception or intention. Do you believe people like Brod are correctly acting in the greater interest of art. Or do you believe he betrayed the fundamental individual freedoms that are at the heart of what art is. Are there circumstances or situations that are exceptions?

    Great post! It is really hard to come up with all-purpose answers for these questions. The scholars, historians and musicologists would say that every scrap of information that can provide a deeper understanding of an artist’s legacy is fair game, if one is looking at it from that point of view.

    But I can also see it from the other side, the artist’s side. Freedom of expression must also include the freedom to chose what you do not express. I am really torn.

    But as for only Germans being allowed to play Bach, (apart from the fact that the German state as such did not exist in Bach’s time, and the different Germanic areas have very different cultures in some respects), I also disagree strongly. One of the most powerful things about music is its universality. Take away the universality throught the appplication of this kind of gatekeeper mentality, and the music is diminished.

    I think artists, especially successful ones, have to beware the trappings of narcissism . You make the play by submitting your work for consumption, you lose all rights and get no sympathy. The price of fame, wealth, and talent is pretty cheap if you think about it. I’d take it.

    And Franz, if you really don’t want anyone to see your work, burn it yourself! Don’t tell others to kill your babies.

    I vote thumbs up for Brod.

    Hey Grace,
    I agree with you on most of this post. I’d only add two points here:
    1. I’ve seen a lot of foreigners playing Brazilian music and it always sounds very different from what the music actually is. So, it’s not that I’d like that only Brazilian musicians played Brazilian music. It’s just that… it sounds different. It’s another music. I know that our music is not one of the basis for western music, such as 18th century German music is, so, yes, maybe we all have an European (depending on style, country and time period) accent on music but it’s not exactly what it was written, I believe. (It never is, anyway)
    2. About publishing and “owning” the artwork… I really believe that once a work is placed on the world, it’s not possessed by the artist anymore. It was DONE by him, but it’s not his/hers. The closest thing I could compare to is like having a child. The parents “made” him, but it’s not theirs. It has its own life. Maybe personal letters and notes are a bit too much, but not music. And we all know that some people think that a piece is good and some think it’s bad, the composer may think that some thing’s bad when it’s not. :)
