J. Krishnamurti: Silence, Music and the Arts

Nicholas Martin discusses with Maria João Pires her introduction to Krishnamurti

London Concert Cadogan Hall September 3rd, 2016

The idea of a concert at Cadogan Hall in central London came about as a result of an informal discussion at the Krishnamurti Centre about J. Krishnamurti’s work reaching a wider public, particularly amongst those interested in the arts. Krishnamurti’s appreciation of the arts and his comments about beauty and truth are well-known. He noted that part of the beauty of music is in the "silence between the notes". He spoke often of the importance of silence in life and the need for attention and awareness. The London concert, which is to support Krishnamurti Foundation Trust has been entitled J. Krishnamurti: Silence, Music and the Arts.

The event will be introduced by Radio 3 presenter Ian Skelly. Aditi Mangaldas, well-known in Indian Classical dance, will open the concert. She will be followed by Nigel North, one of the world’s foremost lutenists who will play a Bach Suite. The concert will finish with world renowned pianist Maria João Pires playing Beethoven’s last piano sonata. Proceeds from the concert will go towards making J.Krishnamurti`s works available to the public.
