Afterwards I walked down to Fleet Street and then along the strand to stop to have a coffee. I took 4 pics which I have loaded up into FB including one of a Nissan Leaf which I dont remember having seen before.
I am pressing on with AH's music and aesthetics. This morning it was mainly about various facets of romanticism which tended to favour the idea that music is expression of feelings. But after that the emphasis shifted to music for music's sake or absolute music. Under the influence of C Rosen I have been shifting towards the idea of music as the expression of negative feelings. I was interested to see that the contrast between Apollonian and Dionysian music which features in AK's radio interview with the Dutch station is formulated by Nietzsche. N changed tack sharply when he heard Parsifal - because the opera seems to endorse ideas which are the opposite of his own.
When I was at the IoE I picked up an article about learning in clusters. The suggestion is that in a cluster there is an aopportunity for firms to learn from each other in a way which is not readily available to outsiders.
