La música, font de salut
Oriol Romaní
Publisher: AMALGAMA edicions, 1998
Stemming from an invitation to participate in a study on work-related illnesses experienced by musicians and interpreters, clarinettist Oriol Romaní was motivated to express his own ideas on a wider subject: music as a source of health, and as a privileged means for integral education, personal growth and a more fulfilled and happier life.
