MUSIC, HISTORY AND THE LIVES OF COMPOSERS   

This class is for music lovers and amateur historians. During each session, we will learn about one particular time in a composer’s life and the composition that experience inspired. Our chosen composers are Chopin, Brahms, Verdi, Rimsky-Korsakov, Holst, Shostakovich and Copland. Histories will cover events in Poland, Hungary, Italy, Russia and the US. Each session is selected from “Music as a Mirror of History”, a lecture series by Professor Robert Greenberg, a prolific presenter of music-related topics for Great Courses, who presents in a lively, engaging style. Here he turns to connections between specific compositions and their historical context. Many of these topics will have somber back stories. We will hear and view one lecture per session, leaving ample time for discussion and further exploration.
