Old and New Friends


Friendship has always been a big theme in music. Whether "Just Friends", which became a jazz standard through Charlie Parker, "Can't We Be Friends" by Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald, Joseph Haydn's "To Friendship" or pop classics such as "With A Little Help From My Friends" by the Beatles: time and again, artistic monuments are set to friendship as one of the great trust values of being human. What makes friendship so precious is the fact that it functions like an expanding self-assurance of the same, that in the mutual recognition between people it triggers a sense of symmetry with regard to thinking, acting and being.
