Classical Music—LIVE!! : A Winter Musical Interlude

with Liz Diamond



Only 3 days left to register!

Are you missing the excitement of going to live classical concerts with friends? Wait no more! This five-week winter musical interlude will include full-length live concerts (via YouTube) as well as a potpourri of different movements from fantastic live concerts (recorded live, available online) that we will watch together. Information about the composers, performers, music, including historical context, will be provided.  

Class discussion encouraged. (Spoiler alert: the first class will be Beethoven’s 9th Symphony—if you haven’t heard this piece in entirety—or even if you have—this is an experience you won’t want to miss!) Performances will also include: Bach’s Violin Sonatas and Partitas (recorded at Jordan Hall), Mahler’s 2nd Symphony, Brahms’ 1st Symphony, selections by Chopin, Borodin and some surprises.
