Supporters of digital books argue that they are more portable and virtually indestructible. Moreover, they tend to be more affordable, and in some cases, they are even free. These arguments carry considerable weight.

However, there is nothing quite like the comfort and relaxation that comes with curling up with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book. The choice between digital and printed books ultimately depends on personal preference and may also vary depending on the individual’s age.

With a physical book, one can truly immerse themselves among the pages of those wonderful paper materials. This is an experience that cannot be replicated with a digital book.

Another aspect to consider is value. First editions of printed books can be quite expensive, whereas e-books are often available at a significantly lower price.

There is also another factor to contemplate when comparing costs. While a physical book may be pricier, it becomes a permanent possession that can be proudly …

Knight Medieval

There is always an intriguing perspective on the events that have unfolded throughout history, each distinct in its own right. While the past has shaped the memories we hold, it has also influenced the development of both individuals and society today. As part of the fascinating tapestry of European history, the Middle Ages is characterized by three distinct periods, one of which is the Medieval period. When the Roman Empire lost its grip, the Medieval period took its place. In terms of music during this era, medieval instruments played a crucial role in defining its character.

Plucked stringed instruments were particularly popular during the Medieval period. Additionally, the music produced during this time was divided into two categories: sacred and secular. Naturally, musicians who composed melodies and lyrics for the church aimed to portray it in a positive light. On the contrary, secular music served as entertainment and reflected the perspectives of the common class. As travelers journeyed from one place to another, they spread these musical messages, utilizing instruments such as bagpipes that were portable and lightweight.

Every celebration, whether a feast or festival, called for an uplifting atmosphere, and medieval instruments greatly contributed to the overall ambiance of …

Would You Learn Chinese?

If you are up to date on the global economy, you’ll recognize that China has the fastest-growing economy in the world. In fact, the Chinese language has become so prominent in business that the demand for learning Chinese has more than tripled in the past decade. Additionally, if you look at the courses offered in major and secondary schools, you’ll see Chinese language courses being offered.

Consider that half of Asia already speaks some form of Chinese or incorporates elements of Chinese into their native languages.

Why should you learn Chinese? Because the world today needs it. With the growing appreciation for Chinese culture, such as martial arts, media (who can forget Jackie Chan?), and Chinese cuisine, inspirations have emerged from Eastern ways of life, sparking a call to learn Chinese.

The Chinese culture itself represents harmony, peace, and serenity, contrasting with the fast-paced, time-driven business life of the Western world.

Learning Chinese, whether it’s the arts, language, or cultural practices, can provide tools to enrich your daily life and restore balance. The influence of Chinese culture is undeniable.

To the audience of music

Gunnar Colding is a former professional cellist who for 25 years has been employed by chamber orchestras as well as symphony orchestras of Sweden. This is an exceptional article he wrote for us.

To the audience of music

There was recently given a concert in New York mainly consisting of works by Mozart. When a soprano afterwards would perform some songs by Webern (music soon a hundred years old but Atonal) the audience BOOED her out! OPUS, the leading musical magazine of Sweden, therefore put the question, why Swedes don’t boo at concerts.

The short answer is simple. They are brought up not to, and whoever violates the pattern therefore risks “making a fool of himself”. The longer answer is somewhat more complicated, but still logic to those who have the energy to look a little deeper into the crystal ball.

All avant-gardists who have advanced to some level live in some kind of symbiosis with the culture knowledgeables of the media. Together they form a hype and a trademark.
