a video by Nicholas Bussmann 18 minutes

With terms like: dolce, blue, lacrimoso, mit zärtlicher Hingabe… european composers since the 18th century enriched their notations to give the performer an idea of the attitude the music should be played with. These vocabulary of emotion evoking words in various european language form a new body in society, best described in german: Bildungsbürger. The Video, in a Sonata form, is a very personal collection and reflection on a tradition of emotion.
