Tafelmusik offers attractive opposites
The concept of yin and yang, the perfection of opposites, is an Eastern idea. But it was with Western musical culture that the spiritual truth of this insight was given astounding relevance on Thursday night as Tafelmusik presented its last concert of the season.
The earth and fire of yin, to use another set of opposites, was provided by the music of Beethoven, the essence of vitality and forthrightness in Western musical life.
