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.

This evening, Kapilow focuses on Schumann’s Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 44. Then, after a performance with The Curtis Insitute of Music Quintet, he leads a question-and-answer session with the audience and performers.
