What Makes it Great: Beethoven Appassionata Sonata (Postponed)

This program has been postponed.

Have you ever wondered what makes a work of music a masterpiece?  Rob Kapilow “uses compositional theories and vigorous storytelling to deconstruct melodies, harmonies, themes and motifs into the essence of a work’s appeal.  Lectures enlivened by audience participation and generally raucous encouragement from Mr. Kapilow, end with a performance by a soloist or orchestra of the complete work analyzed.” — The New York Times

Beethoven Appassionata Sonata
with Adam Golka, piano

Celeberate Beethovan’s 250th birthday by deepening your appreciation for one of his greatest masterpieces, The Piano Sonata No. 23 in F minor, known more familiarly as the Appassionata.  Adam Golka praised in The New York Times for his “accomplished, vibrant playing” will perform the composition.
