Art. Science. An understanding heart; an artistic brain. Senses – sensibility – sensuality.
All of them mixed together.

Maybe the harmony of two sounds can be explained by simple physical laws. But the harmony of two souls is rather out of laws – it creates its own laws… it’s a feast of creation. Can we find a reasoning mind in music? And how can we tell it? All mediocre composers created using their mind – and all genial composers added something more than mere mathematics and calculation. In Mozart’s works even rocks and trees talk, and listening to such music a human mind can stop talking and perceive it in silence. The top where the polyphonic thoughts of harmony directed to the abyss are crossing and merging into the whole is the Adagio of Bach’s famous Brandenburg Concerto. The thought is developing in the fourth circle in two symmetric cadences. I feel a stubborn struggle there, a struggle for the victory of harmony that makes two melodies sound not controversially but in accordance. Harmony wins polyphony.
Bach and Vienna classics didn’t create theories using just deduction: their works seem to be natural as nature itself, and their harmony is true. Maybe the harmony of all the sixteen overtones played with the pedal is like the sound of ringing Spheres of Pythagoras. The Spheres of Stars, the Sun and the Moon, which correlated to each other as fourths, fifths and eights. The fourths, fifths and eights that were the basis of four-string tuning of Orpheus’ lyre.

If I try to make scientific conclusions, I feel confusion because I see the principles of another level.. another world maybe. My appraisal always deals with feelings and intuition. God is felt by heart, not by reason. An empathic penetration belongs to appraising feeling, and scientific analysis belongs to reasoning mind. But feelings are easy to mislead – as easy as reasoning mind. So I train my feelings and my mind, in order not to be misled. The idea of Two Hearts in any single person is true – I really feel them in me. But I would add another one – I think every person really has three hearts. One of them takes all it needs from life; one gives all it can to life, and the deepest Third Heart, the true heart of every person, is hidden in the very profundity. The third heart is the real center of all person’s life. The Third Heart is not easy to find: it opens with love. If it opens, it makes us feel the deep meaning of our life.
