The circle is (usually) complete. (And a season usually concludes with Beethoven). The emotional roller coaster of the long previous century agitated modern man’s stomach so that he can pass on new smoother roads to Canaan – though arrival gets more and more uncertain. Disappointed in God, Man, art, generals and prophets, the only thing that remained was the new trinity: equality, fraternity, liberty! Don’t laugh at it today when it seems easy to scrap it and choose nothing instead in disappointment. Belief hasn’t been an easy profession, this has also been known to the great rebel. Imprisoned in himself, beyond humane, beyond the slant of happiness, what was the reason of shouting the last heroic proclamation of freedom to God himself?
