About

Yasuharu Nagura has performed a new live recording entitled 『On the Music of the Heavenly Spheres』that is released August 1, 2018.

作品解説

古代ギリシアの音楽理論では、音楽の調和(ハルモニア)は宇宙の調和と同じと考えられていた。天体の運行が音を発し、宇宙全体が和声を奏でているという発想である。これは「天球の音楽」と呼ばれた。このような発想の根底には、宇宙が数の原理に基づいている。そして、音楽によってこの原理を体現するという西洋の伝統的思想がある。この作品は「天球の音楽」の思想に影響を受けた。

Statement

In ancient Greek music theory, music harmony (Harmonia) was thought to be the same as harmony of the universe. It is the idea that the operation of the celestial body emits sound and the whole universe plays harmony. This was called “celestial music.” At the root of this idea, the universe is based on the principle of numbers. And there is a Western traditional idea to embody this principle by music. This album was influenced by the philosophy of “celestial music.”
