Music and Peace


The building of peace not an easy task. Spiritual values that serve to build the world and to build peace; none more important than culture. The need to support a policy which combines both political and cultural leadership if we are to have a true peace, based upon that freedom which is the best of all things in the life of man. One language which can speak to us all: the language of music. A look at the present state of music in contemplation of, and preparation for, these new responsibilities of a changing art in a fast changing world. The increasing quantity of music. Mechanical inventions, such as the radio and recording, that have made the literature of music readily available to everyone. Other reasons for the increase in the popularity of music. An examination of the quality of music. A new audience born out of the radio. The issue of the sponsoring of the Metropolitan Opera and the major symphony orchestras of North America by industrial corporations. Music, and the two sorts of people to whom it belongs: the makers and the listeners. The effect of the spread of music on musicians. The nature and demands of modern music. The increase in piano-technique, and reasons for it. The development of music education. Music as an element of unity. Music as a sustainer of those values without which the world can so swiftly decline to a state of barbarism.
