Benjamin Zander TED talk: The transformative power of music
This isn’t exactly new (2008), but it most certainly is something I come back to (or stumble upon, as the case may be this time) from time to time because it is just that good. Zander speaks so incredibly passionately and articulately that I simply can’t help but get chocked up every time I watch. His thoughts on phrasing, the long arc of music (and life), and the transformative power of really engaging with classical music are simply invaluable. I hope you take as much from this as I do.
