New this season, each class begins with a 20-minute discussion of the concert programs being performed at The Four Arts that week. Gain a greater appreciation of the music and historic context of the composer, and then hear the pieces live in concert.
This season, How to Listen to Classical Music focuses on the evolution of orchestral works from the Classical period of Beethoven through Brahms in the Romantic era. Throughout the course, anecdotes of recent masters, such as Rachmaninoff, will be highlighted.
The course presents an in-depth focus on the structure and interpretation of iconic masterworks as well as the composer’s life at the time of composition and the conductors who made the works famous. Also included will be concerti for piano, violin, and cello.
Juliette de Marcellus is a pianist, prize- winning music critic, and lecturer. She studied at the Guildhall School of Music in London and with professor Leonie Gombrich at Oxford.
