Monday, March 15 - Monday, April 05, 2021
|No events found.|
From the Baroque to the 20th century, music historian Betsy Schwarm presents her insights into some of the master composers of great music. We’ll consider harpsichords and pirouettes, defined structures and creative freedom, and much more in four one-hour, livestreamed class sessions exploring how the art of writing symphonies, concertos, keyboard works, and ballets evolved over the course of 200 years. No music reading required, just an active interest in how great music came to be and how we, as listeners, can get the most out of our listening experiences. There’ll be time for questions at the end of each session.
Session I - March 15 at 7pm: Baroque Basics: Vivaldi vs. Bach
Session II - March 22 at 7pm: Classical Creators: Mozart vs. Beethoven
Session III - March 29 at 7pm: Keyboard Classics: Chopin vs. Liszt
Session IV - April 5 at 7pm: A Vision of Dance: Tchaikovsky vs. Copland
