Past sessions included the following topics:
Mozart’s Cream of the Crop
A sampling of Wolfgang’s compositions which transcend all his others — the string quintets, the piano concertos, and his late operas.
All You Need Is (the) Love (album)!
An examination of this masterpiece which is the sound track for Cirque du Soleil’s long running “Love” show in Las Vegas. The album contains fascinating layering and remixing of Beatles songs, parts of which are intertwined simultaneously.
Transcriptions and Covers, Why Bother?
Great pieces and songs stand on their own, yet composers and artists insist on putting their own stamp on them. We’ll sample some of these, from Bach to the Beach Boys.
Final Years, Final Moments
A look at the twilight of composers’ lives and some wonderful works which were borne of their suffering and imminent demise.
