Communicating through music – a concert between musicians and audience.

Sophie Wolter


"Music is the language everybody understands."

A phrase we come upon sooner or later in our lives as musicians. But what does it actually mean? Does it mean we can "talk" to each other through music like we would with any other language? Or does it rather mean we can communicate through a direct emotional connection, avoiding the "detour" of intellectual understanding? Would it be both, or the emotional connection leading to intellectual understanding? Find out for yourself at Different Eyes | Different Ears.
