Movement for Musical Renewal
- In the logo of the Lyre Association, the phrase "Movement
for Musical Renewal" appears above the name of the association.
As this arrangement implies, the association is part of a
larger movement that is central to its mission and work. Yet,
this Movement for Musical Renewal is not easy to define or
describe. Inspired by the ideas of anthroposophy,
it is characterized by the application of the phenomenological
approach of Wolfgang von Goethe to music, in which we attempt
to engage in active listening and to experience the essence
of the most basic elements of music, such as the single tone
and the musical interval. Moreover, we acknowledge and explore
the relationship of music to the different aspects of the
human being--physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
