. Plato’s Symposium – this improvisation is in the warm, contented and raucous sounding ancient Greek Hypophrygian Mode - perfect for evoking images of an ancient Greek drinking party!

Plato’s Symposium was the after affects of a drinking party in which an account (ultimately of many other accounts) is presented about the meanings attached to romantic love (eros). Each would present their own educated ideologies about love and its meaning for human beings. All was going well until Alcibiades crashed the party, drunk and declaring his undying love for Socrates, who did not reciprocate the feelings. Plato’s masterpiece is paid homage to in this spirited song which reflects the joys, disappointments and often time, chaotic nature of love.
