There are certain things that are fated, that no matter how hard we try are beyond our ability to alter or shape.  There are certain things over which we do have agency.  And then of course there is dumb luck.  But suppose you put me in exactly the same place where I started, with the same parents, living on the same street, and you gave me 99 more tries.  There would be 99 different outcomes.

Wars are what we know about ourselves as human beings.  Whatever flaws we see in ourselves, and in our neighbors, friends and enemies, if there is such a thing as original sin, it’s that.  And when it gets written large in world leaders, then yeah, it’s just hard to imagine we’re ever going to live in a world where war is not right around the corner.

You’ve said this album is your last recording of Bach.  Is this tour a victory lap?
I don’t have any plans for immediate demise.  I’m not suffering from an illness that is fatal, other than being alive.  I’m committed to thinking about cultural and social impact because that’s what I feel we need in the world at this time: to make sure that culture has an equal seat at the table as politics and economics.  I don’t think there’s anything more important I can do, and I will devote the rest of my life to thinking in this way.
