Auditory therapy of A. Tomatis (part 4)

Why Mozart?
But why Mozart? Why not Bach, Beethoven, the Beatles? Mozart did not create the stunning effects that Bach’s mathematical genius was capable of. His music does not stir up waves of emotions like Beethoven’s works. She relaxes the body like the folk melodies and brings him to the movement under the influence of music “stars” of the rock. So what’s the matter then? Perhaps, in is, that Mozart remains and mysterious, and accessible. His intelligence, charm and simplicity make us wiser.Many Mozart’s music helps to find peace of mind. If it restores the energy balance and harmony in the body, it performs the function to which all medical systems aspire. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietetics and other methods are aimed at restoring the energy balance, which we call health. Mozart’s music, not too smooth, not too fast, not too quiet, not too loud – for some reason “just what you need”.

Musical rhythms are known to affect the rhythms of the nervous system, which regulate the vast biological landscape within our body. It is not difficult to understand, therefore, how important the simplicity and clarity of Mozart’s music is for our emotions and for the whole organism.

We can compare the effect of music by different composers to the action of different dishes, which also have an impact on our energy and physiology and can be both beneficial and harmful. By the way, we note that delicacies are not always the most useful dishes. Sometimes simpler food suits us much more as a daily meal.

The same is true of music. Its diversity gives us a wealth of sensations, but only certain forms regulate and stabilize our feelings. Tomatis is convinced that Mozart’s music has no equal in the ability to bring harmony to the human soul. He uses Mozart because his works are purged better than any other music. In the case of Depardieu was chosen exactly the set of vibrations in which his body needed the most. According to Tomatis, Mozart’s works are a perfectly balanced musical “dish” containing all the necessary components.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – a child with a prophetic gift, who wrote operas, symphonies, concerts and sonatas for piano, music for organ, clarinet and other instruments before he was twelve years old, and seemed to know that he was destined to die young, left the world the most amazing and harmonious musical vibrations, whose healing power is yet to be appreciated by us and our descendants.

Curious fact
…Monks from the monastery of Brittany found that cows, getting along with food and more Mozart’s music, give more milk.

…In Canada, Mozart’s string quartets are performed directly on city squares to streamline traffic. A “side” effect was also found: as a result, drug consumption decreased.

…A curious detail is noticed by the Japanese: when Mozart’s works sound near yeast, then with their presence the best vodka “sake”turns out.

Productivity yeast, used for preparations traditional rice vodka, increased in 10 times, if yeast “listened to” Mozart. The power of Mozart’s music became the focus of attention mainly as a result of pioneering research by the University of California in the mid-1990s. Then a number of scientists studied the influence of Mozart’s works on the mental potential of students and increasing their ability to assimilate the program material.

“Mozart’s music is able to warm up the brain,” says one of the researchers. He believes that Mozart’s music undoubtedly has a positive impact on the processes of higher brain activity required for mathematics and chess. After the publication of the results of these studies, buyers literally swept from the shelves of music stores Mozart’s works. However, not only Mozart’s music has certain effects.
