In terms of developmental history, the origin of language can be traced to the origins of music. Preferred patterns in the music of a composer show remarkable similarities with the metrics and melodies of his mother tongue. Early language acquisition also influences our musical perception. However, is the opposite not also true? In developmental history, the ability to articulate differentiated sounds came first. Only then was it possible to ascribe meaning to them. The enthusiasm for intervals and rhythmically structured tonal sequences thus precedes language. It is one reason why music affects people, regardless of their cultural background. A concert featuring composers from Slovenia, China and Korea? No problem! Not even if one then adds an Italian composer writing in homage to an esteemed colleague from Hungary to the mix.
