French pianist Alexandre Tharaud took a sabbatical year to perfect his interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, a set of 30 variations on an original theme that is one of the pinnacles of the keyboard literature. His 2015 recording of this demanding and complex work received widespread acclaim and praise for his unique approach to the masterpiece.

“He conceives the whole piece as a drama that sucks us in and doesn’t let us go, and carefully paints vivid character along the way.” — The Guardian

What makes great music great? Distinguished and engaging composer/conductor Rob Kapilow presents a program that delves into Mozart’s “Dissonance” String Quartet with our current Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence. Kapilow will deconstruct, dissect, slow down, and reassemble Mozart’s final quartet dedicated to his friend, Joseph Haydn. Discover why “Dissonance” has come to be considered one of the most famous of his 26 quartets.

“Because Kapilow is so good at what he does, knowledge about how music actually works, how it is put together–as opposed to dry facts about composers’ lives — doesn’t fly away with the whirlwind, but instead lodges in the memory, where they can grow.” — Boston Globe
