Is music a language? If so, who is “talking” and what is the message?
Pianist Ian Parker will address these questions on January 19 with three remarkable pieces of music that are mapped on the same creative pattern: one fertile theme and its variations.
Written by three musical geniuses (Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms) whose lives and careers were wondrously intertwined, the works are each representative of different periods in the evolution of the piano repertoire as it evolved from the classical to the romantic eras.
