Requiem for My Friend: (Zbigniew Preisner) In the mid-1990's, Polish composer Zbigniew Preisner was working on a collaboration with his close associate, director Krzysztof Kieslowski, and screenwriter Krzysztof Piesiewicz that would have produced the kind of massive operatic concert at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece that Vangelis and others had strived to create through the years. Their collaboration was quite fruitful, yielding the films and scores for the Colours Trilogy (Blue, White, and Red) as well as Dekalog and The Double Life of Veronique…

There are so many wonderful things to be said about Krzystof Kieslowski's "Three Colors Trilogy", not the least of which is the absolutely stirring music of his composer Zbigniew Preisner.Preisner is phenominal at capturing the story, the individual characters and the emotions portrayed.
"White" is the second in the trilogy. It is the story of Karol Karol(portrayed brillantly by Zbigniew Zamachowski), a pitiful man who is trying to win back the beautiful wife(Julie Delpy) who left him.It is drama, comedy, intrigue and romance all rolled into one great film and Preisner's music defines each scene perfectly.The music is recorded by "The String Sextet and The Zbigniew Preisner Light Orchestra" and Directed by Zbigniew Paleta.

A beautifully made yet abstruse film, The Double Life of Veronique is the story of two young women who are in some mysterious and irresolvable way the same woman leading two different yet interconnected lives. Directed by the great Krzysztof Kieslowski, known for his Blue, White & Red films. The score by Zbigniew Preisner compliments the oblique images.

The music that flows from this album is of the Gods. You don't have to see the film. Just play this and you will melt. The Concerto in track 5 still brings tears to my eyes even after many listens. It is also a key point in the film.

Eros, Wisdom, and Silence: Plato's Erotic Dialogues

Eros, Wisdom, and Silence: Plato's Erotic Dialogues (ERIC VOEGELIN INST SERIES) by James M. Rhodes
English | May 12, 2003 | ISBN: 0826214592 | 590 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Eros, Wisdom, and Silence is a close reading of Plato’s Seventh Letter and his dialogues Symposium and Phaedrus, with significant attention also given to Alcibiades I. A book about love, James Rhodes’s work was conceived as a conversation and meant to be read side by side with Plato’s works and those of his worthy interlocutors. It invites lovers to participate in conversations that move their souls to love, and it also invites the reader to take part in the author’s dialogues with Plato and his commentators.

In Silence and Listening as Rhetorical Arts, editors Cheryl Glenn and Krista Ratcliffe bring together seventeen essays by new and established scholars that demonstrate the value and importance of silence and listening to the study and practice of rhetoric. Building on the editors’ groundbreaking research, which respects the power of the spoken word while challenging the marginalized status of silence and listening, this volume makes a strong case for placing these overlooked concepts, and their intersections, at the forefront of rhetorical arts within rhetoric and composition studies.
