Pianist Ian Scarfe shares a program featuring the big names of the classical era: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Franz Joseph Haydn. What made these composers into the lasting artists that they have become? What about their music was tradition, and what was revolutionary? Scarfe will discuss several works by each composer, including Sonatas, Fantasies, and various dances, to show what makes this music still charming and approachable today.
Scarfe will share stories about the composers and the history of this music, and offer a kind of “listening guide” to the audience to deepen the listening experience. He will also be on hand to take questions from the audience and participate in a live discussion afterwards.
