AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF KENT NAGANO –
By Bernard Bujold-
I am reading the autobiography «KENT NAGANO – CLASSICAL MUSIC – EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED».
A very interesting book very well writing about music, life and even politics…
Regarding the political world, according to Nagano, the nationalism of Donald Trump did not began with him as these tendencies always existed, are cyclical and now are all over Europe countries.
Kent Nagano also comment about the presidency of Barack Obama. « He promised a lot, but- it would appear to me – implemented only little of it. Under his presidency (Obama) American society did not become a blueprint for a process of society renewal, a model for the future. On the contrary, it is paralyzed by division, incomprehension and distrust, disillusionment and resignation. » wrote Nagano.
The autobiography of Nagano is however a lot about the place of classical music in our society and its role for the humanity. This book will certainly become a classic on the subject of music.
