Fantastic TED Talk #5 (My favorite one of all...)
I remember when I first heard this presentation. It was about 6 months ago and I was alone (rare), listening to the TED talk on our ipod (TED has a podcast, by the way...) while I organized the children's art supplies in the sunroom. I had to stop working during the Chopin performance--to sit near the speakers, close my eyes, and just absorb the beauty of that piece. Wow.
(listen: you'll see what I mean....that part starts at about 13 minutes.)
Actually, I prefer this one in an audio format rather than video. When you get to the part of the presentation when you should be listening to the music, it's more powerful to be listening than viewing. (in my humble opinion)
To listen to the audio, click on the link below the video ("audio to iTunes").
