The Mind and Music of Beethoven: Lecture & Concert by Richard Kogan, MD

When: Tue., April 25, 7-8:30 p.m. 2017

Deafness is a hardship for anyone, but for a musician it is catastrophic. When Ludwig van Beethoven first experienced loss of hearing as a young man, he contemplated suicide, but he made the decision to resist his suicidal impulses and instead fulfill his artistic destiny. Harvard-trained psychiatrist and Juilliard-trained concert pianist Dr. Richard Kogan gives a lecture/concert that examines how Beethoven became a greater composer once locked inside the silent world of his imagination. Dr. Kogan explores the psychological basis of Beethoven’s creative life and will illuminate the discussion with performances of some of Beethoven’s most extraordinary music.
