Psychosomatic reactions to some types of musical art

Music at all times, since its inception, has been used as a means of influencing people’s consciousness. With its help, different goals were achieved. Knowledgeable people wisely approached the musical design of their events.

He graduated with honors from the Medical and Surgical Academy, defended his dissertation for a doctor of medicine, was among such prominent figures of Russian science as A.M. Butlerov, D.I.

For 17 years he worked on opera. Music inspires her, awakens patriotic feelings. French composer Hector Berlioz touched medicine. Born in the family of a doctor, at the insistence of his father he studied medicine, but also was fond of poetry, art, music.

His opera Beatrice and Benedict is especially famous for Shakespeare’s comedy, Much Ado About Nothing. The bright, cheerful music of the opera creates a wonderful mood, ignites with fun and humor.
