Consonance and Dissonance: Apollo and Dionysus in Music?


This is a lecture by the eminent pianist Carlo Grante, which he gave as part of a lecture series "Music Explains Itself" for the Accademia Merano in Italy. Carlo is one of my musical mentors, and he kindly asked if he could use a clip from my TEDxSalzburg talk on this subject, "What Makes Music Emotional?"

I thought key-notes visitors would appreciate this fascinating lecture that explains the language of music from the inside out. Enjoy!
