Pezhman Mosleh releases hommage to Dr Irvin Yalom called On The Threshold or When Music celebrates Psychotherapeutic Literature and Philosophy
On The Threshold: An hommage to Dr Irvin Yalom
Dr. Irvin Yalom is Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Stanford University and the author of several highly acclaimed textbooks and novels, including “Existential Psychotherapy”. The author also penned stories and novels related to psychotherapy, including “Love’s Executioner”, “When Nietzsche Wept” (23 September 2018), Lying on the Couch, Momma and the Meaning of Life, and The Schopenhauer Cure. His latest non-fiction book is Staring at the Sun: Overcoming the Terror of Death.
Yalom is arguably one of the greatest philosophers of the current century and it is not just awards that have recognised his input. International Iranian composer Pezhman Mosleh has dedicated a musical composition to the man. The philosophical piece dedicated to Dr. Yalom is entitled “On the Threshold”. Its sound is reminiscent of the evocative sound of Mosleh
Dr. Irvin Yalom has even given the piece and his composer the honour of publishing it on his Facebook page. The existential psychiatrist even appends a warm, personalised comment:
“An eminent Iranian composer, Pezhman Mosleh, has honored me with this gift: a musical composition and video arrangement.”
The video features some talking towards the end, including extracts of Dr Yalom speeches. Nina Bahri is the impressive pianist featured on the record, produced almost contradictorily at Pop Studio.
A text, written by Pezhman Mosleh, ends the video including the words: “The feature of YALOM is love.” You can find more about Dr Irvin Yalom through the Books by Irvin D Yalom (including his biography, Becoming Myself: A Psychiatrist’s memoirs), on Dr Yalom’s official website and on his Wikipedia page.
