"La filosofia (...) diminuendo il nostro senso di sicurezza nei riguardi delle cose come sono, aumenta grandemente la nostra conoscenza di come possono essere."
B. Russell, I problemi della filosofia, 1912

Haendel, dal Dixit Dominus , "De Torrente In Via Bibet", per due soprani, coro e orchestra

Solo da ascoltare:
uno dei brani che più mi ha colpito in giovinezza; così intensamente ricco di dissonanze magistralmente incastonate in un tessuto ritmico e melodico soave e fluido.
Per riconciliarsi con l'umanità
