Heiner Goebbels: Eislermaterial

...but suddenly found myself inside one of the greatest musical events:..."Don't illustrate your feelings but comment on them musically. Be objective," Eisler once said. This may sound dry, but in Goebbels' case this means the most grandiose form of specualtion on the future of music. Only German culture can be so serious and yet so full of honesty and melancholia"
