328 • Oblivion

The reciting profession – the Epic – as well as the collective experience – the Tragedy – were very important to ancient society, to the people of Hellenistic Greece. To remind of the heritage of culture, to remember who we are as a people, to reiterate truth about the human condition. These priceless traditions were in existence for centuries. They are now lost, forgotten.

If we collectively forget Beethoven, we will become another people. Do we want to become those other people?
