Why does a piece of music sometimes flow past your brain, suffuse your soul, and remain in your memory? Answer: It’s great. If you require more explanation than that, Rob Kapilow, well-known commentator, conductor, and composer, has a knack for unraveling and exploring the elements that combine to render a musical composition a masterpiece.
In the upcoming season of his popular What Makes It Great? series, Kapilow brings his insights to enduring musical works. Each session follows a three-part format. Kapilow first offers an in-depth discussion of the featured work. Next, the piece is performed in its entirety. A question-and-answer session with the audience and performers rounds out the program.
