Caramoor favorite and esteemed scholar Richard Kogan returns to continue his series diving into the Mind & Music of the composers and musicians whose works we know and love but whose minds tell us a deeper story. Marking Leonard Bernstein’s centenary, Dr. Kogan, a Juilliard-trained pianist, will combine his lecture with performance examples that are as relevant as they are technically masterful.

“I came away from this extraordinary lecture and performance deeply moved by a fascinating presentation that only Dr. Kogan, psychiatrist and concert pianist, can deliver.” — Yo-Yo Ma
