A Canção da Terra (Das Lied von der Erde) é um espetáculo operístico (cantata), criado a partir da obra homônima de Gustav Mahler, uma de suas últimas composições, em que a angústia existencial e uma sublime grandiosidade estão em conjunção quase perfeita.

O diretor Yoshi Oida se propõe a criar, nessa montagem, a expressão do esplendor da terra e da natureza. O espaço cênico é um jardim zen japonês, buscando a limpeza e a precisão ideais para a representação dos acontecimentos. Dois cantores (a soprano Masami Ganev e o tenor Miguel Geraldi) e quatro atores interpretam monges de um monastério budista, lamentando pelo declínio da Terra, nesse momento de crise ecológica - um colapso que atravessa a questão científica e avança sobre o homem, ‘senhor e destruidor’ da natureza. Todo esse tema transparece nos poemas chineses e nas imagens cênicas criadas por Yoshi Oida. A música será executada ao vivo, pela orquestra do Ensemble Instituto Fukuda , composta por 21 músicos, e com regência de Érica Hindrikson.

NEW BOOK> The First Western Book about Buddhism and Buddha, by Ozeray and App

by Charles Muller
Michel-Jean-François OZERAY & Urs APP:

THE FIRST WESTERN BOOK ABOUT BUDDHISM AND BUDDHA

Wil: UniversityMedia, 2017
ISBN: 978-3-906000-27-5

From the back cover:

Although the Western encounter with Asia’s largest religion may be the vastest and most consequential spiritual encounter in human history, its protagonists and historical development are still barely known.  Thus it comes as no surprise that even specialists have hitherto failed to appreciate the earliest Western book about Buddhism: Michel-Jean-François Ozeray’s Recherches sur Buddou ou Bouddou, instituteur religieux de l’Asie orientale (Paris, 1817). To commemorate Ozeray’s pioneering work on the 200th anniversary of its publication, it is here presented in the original French with Urs App’s English translation on facing pages.

In his 73-page introduction App presents and analyzes Ozeray’s view of Buddhism and its founder. Tracing the author’s main sources, he explains why his book deserves to be recognized as a pioneering contribution to Western knowledge about Buddhism and to global-scale comparative religion. Published just before the onset of academic research on Buddhism in Europe, Ozeray’s work relied not on Christian missionary literature or romantic speculation but rather on figurative representations and reports furnished by ambassadors, travelers, and long-time residents in Asian countries. Due to its focus on living Buddhism as practised in numerous Asian countries, Ozeray’s pioneering study is—in spite of its inevitable flaws—in many respects more congruent with modern field work than the majority of popular books on Buddhism that bend the spiritualism and esotericism shelves in today’s bookstores.
