Plato has taught us about the importance of music. He emphasized that music should encourage harmony and order as much as possible.

Here is the story of one composition, which is much more than that.

Schindler’s List: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the film score of the 1993 film of the same name, composed and conducted by John Williams. The original score and songs were composed by Williams, and features violinist Itzhak Perlman. Williams wrote music for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, E.T., Superman, Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

John Williams, who frequently collaborates with Spielberg, composed the score for Schindler’s List. The composer was amazed by the film and felt it would be too challenging. He said to Spielberg, “You need a better composer than I am for this film.” Spielberg responded, “I know. But they’re all dead!”. Itzhak Perlman performs the theme on the violin. (Source: Wikipedia).

This is how the famous composition was created, which in my opinion is best performed by the famous violinist, Itzhak Perlman. Perlman was delighted with the music that Williams made, as well as the invitation to play it. He thought that he would give his small contribution because he knows the historical background very well and, as he says, he was “indirectly a victim of that history”.

Perlman has played with incredible emotion!

Williams’ composition and Perlman’s interpretation convey our sadness and describe the suffering, primarily of Jews, but also Serbs and Roma in the camps during the Second World War.

There are no right words to describe how beautiful this is.

I am sure that you felt it.

Music that is telling us that we must not forget what has happened and that each of us, as responsible human being has to give a contribution for this not to happen again.

Logocoaching – coaching by applying basic principles of logotherapy.

Coaching – Sir John Whitmore defines coaching as: “Unlocking person’s potential to maximize their own performance” (Source: Whitmore, J. (2002). Coaching for Performance, Third Edition: Growing People, Performance, and Purpose).

Coaching is not a therapy in any sense!

Logotherapy – Logotherapy provides answers to questions about the meaning of existence. As a psychotherapeutic approach, it brings into psychotherapy the knowledge that in addition to the physical and mental dimension, a person also has a third, spiritual dimension. In Logotherapy, the focus in on the future, on tasks and meaning.
