  • Friday 17 May
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Eric Klein

    The talk will examine the origins of music from the spiritual world as it makes its way into earthly evolution, from the ‘Music of the Spheres’ through the incarnation of Christ and as expressed in the compositions of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner and especially the 20th century music of Dmitri Shostakovich. We will ask questions about the karmic development of man and these great composers, why it is only in the last few hundred years that Western Classical Art Music has evolved on Earth, and how and why this music affects us and our future evolution. Could we have evolved as we have without this music? The karma of Dmitri Shostakovich, his life in Russia, and his impact on humanity will be the main focus.

    Eric Klein was born and raised in an Anthroposophic home in New York, educated at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City, before training as a concert musician at the Manhattan School of Music. His life’s journey has gone through Harvard Business School, the Christian Community Seminary in Stuttgart, Germany before settling in England in 2002. He has worked as a performing musician, composer, conductor, teacher and lecturer.
