Abstract

Following Blending Theory, this chapter analyses a novel metaphor LIFE IS MUSIC which formed a leitmotif of Daniel Barenboim&#8217;s <i>BBC Reith Lectures</i> of 2006. The main focus is on the means and techniques employed by Barenboim, and his use of &#8220;verbo-musical&#8221; metaphors in particular. Because it goes beyond verbo-pictorial modes of representation, the proposed study of verbo-musical metaphors in a dynamically evolving discourse constitutes a new contribution not only to studies of multimodal metaphor in actual language use, but also to debates on conceptual nature of metaphor, &#8220;(metaphorical) thinking for speaking&#8221;, and language and cognition.
