When Mozart dreamt of Michael Jackson, and virtue versa

by Christos Polydorou

They were both children when they dreamt of each other. One dreamt of the future, the other dreamt of the past. In both dreams they dreamt of music, which they rushed to wake up to make, because it was, in both cases, sublime, utterly unlike anything they had ever heard, in its ability to surpass cynicism and that cloying feeling you get when you have heard something too many times but it is timely.
