Public Health Promoted by Classical Music

VERBIER, Switzerland, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The first concert-conference organised by the European research project ASSET 

It is a well-known fact how music positively affects the intellectual development and improves the concentration. This relationship, appreciated by musicians and music fans is gradually gaining more attention also from the scientific research teams around the world. The scientific consortium ASSET, financed by the European Commission, proposes a unique way of integrating classical music in the promotion of education and public health by organising a piano concert where the classical piano pieces will be accompanied by the presentations of six international scientific experts.

"Concerto for Piano and Sciences" is the first event of this kind organised in partnership with the Verbier Festival (Switzerland), one of the most esteemed classical music festivals in Europe. Andrey Gugnin, a Russian virtuoso pianist and laureate of several prestigious international piano competitions will include Verbier in his world tour and will perform on the Bosendorfer grand piano 12 Etudes opus 25 by Frederic Chopin as well as the sublime but rarely heard Sonata Romantica by Nicolai Medtner.

Dr Ariel Beresniak, the CEO of the research organisation Data Mining International and the host of this concert-conference said: " We have a great pleasure and honour to organise this event in partnership with the Verbier Festival, creating a unique opportunity for the public to attend to the combination of classical piano music and extremely informative public health interventions proposed by international experts. It's not often that both the right and the left hemispheres of the human brain can be stimulated in this fashion at the same time in order to better understand the role and the impact of music on the education and the disease prevention. "

The topics presented by the public health experts during the concert-conference will touch more particularly on the aspects of individual and collective health (Dr Ariel Beresniak), the music's impact on the brain (Dr Pierre Lemarquis), the cognitive effects of the early music education (Helene Vareille), the human epidemics of animal origin (Dr Donato Greco), the epidemics response strategies (Dr Sylvie Briand) as well as various defence mechanisms that the communities can employ against future pandemics (Dr Alberto Perra).
