The Human Being as Music

By By Lea van der Pals

Tran. Alan Stott

The Human Being As Music

Book Details

Reviews

THE HUMAN BEING AS MUSIC describes essence and effects of music. The author seeks deeper perspectives, beyond ordinary aesthetic appreciation, based on a lifetime’s experience of eurythmy. Eurythmy, in which music is expressed visually, was initially developed from 1912 by Rudolf Steiner (1861 - 1925). An important and invaluable aspect of this book is the presentation of Steiner’s contribution on music, mainly in his own words.

Eurythmy and The English Language

Since its first appearance in the study-edition of Rudolf Steiner's lecture-cycle Eurythmy as Visible Speech (Anastasi Ltd, 2005) this contribution "Eurythmy and the English Language" by Annelies Davidson has proved its value. Packed with useful observations, and above all, an examination of the living principles, this essay is recognised as the definitive introduction to an important area of eurythmy research and practice. The writer reflects on years of artistic exploration of the English language with Marguerite Lundgren and on her own extensive work.

Marguerite Lundgren was a living example of how it is possible to develop an ear for the creative impulses available especially in music and the sounds of speech. Along with other authorities, mention is made here of Marguerite's respect for the sensitive scholarship of Adam Bittleston - particularly evident in the study of Shakespare - and of the insights of the philosopher of language Owen Barfield. These scholars were profoundly aware of the work of the polymath and linguist Professor Hermann Beckh, who, as a foremost pupil of Rudolf Steiner, followed up Novalis' claim for "genetic etymology", for the creative sounds of speech.

This Mystery wisdom goes back to the first known theory of language in Plato's dialogue Cratylus. Eurythmists attempt to access the primal creativity still available, as Steiner points out, in the language we speak today. In this way, in pursuing their art eurythmists aim to contribute to the renewal of the word in our time.

 

ANNELIES DAVIDSON was born and educated in Holland. In 1974 she graduated from the London School of Eurythmy, England, taught around London and performed with the London Stage Group which toured Europe and the USA. From 1986-2002 she taught in the Eurythmy School, Spring Valley, New York and performed with the Ensemble. She currently works freelance as a teacher and director, focussing on eurythmy in relation to the spoken word.

Marguerite Lundgren Recollections of a Life in Eurythmy

This celebration of the life of Marguerite Lundgren traces her childhood in London through to her founding the London School of Eurythmy and the London Eurythmy Stage Group, together with her insight into the development of eurythmy in the English language. Marguerite had a deep connection with the movement within the sounds of English and English poetry. It was her life's work developing and transforming this into a visible "sounding" in her lessons and performances. For any eurythmist working with eurythmy in English, the section on the "English Sounds" and how to do them can be a great help in finding an approach which transcends mere spelling. As a personality, Marguerite was many-faceted and this comes alive in the many memories of her as a teacher, colleague and friend. These memories tell of a woman who inspired those with whom she worked and lived.

 

Melissa Harwood grew up in California and came to England in 1970. She studied at the London School of Eurythmy under the leadership of Marguerite Lundgren from 1972 - 1976 where she received her diploma in eurythmy. She joined the London Stage Group after her training and travelled with them performing in the U.K. and abroad. She also taught at the London Eurythmy School for fourteen years. Upon leaving the school and Stage Group she moved to London where she worked in the costume department at the Royal Opera House, London. She now works with eurythmy in organisations and has travelled extensively with this aspect of eurythmy as well as holding special courses for eurythmists. Melissa now lives in the Lake District where she also paints and sculpts.
