Classical Music and Medicine

Dr Claudius Conrad grew up studying music; he became quite an accomplished pianist before he turned to medicine. Now that he's a surgeon, he sometimes listens to recordings of himself playing Mozart during operations. Conrad says there's a clear connection: “In surgery, you do something that is comparable to a concert," he says,” and like a concert situation, in surgery you want to do the most beautiful work you can under the most stress."
