The saying goes that "everyone's a critic," especially when it comes to music. At Greenwich Library, learn how to analyze and discuss classical works from a pro with "Be Your Own Music Critic."
From the minds of David Waring, Peterson Music Librarian at Greenwich Library, and Mortimer Frank, a widely published music critic and professor at the Juilliard School and New York University, come programs Oct. 25 and Nov. 23 in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room.
The programs stem from Frank's lecture series on works from Italian conductor Arturo Toscanini. "I felt the Toscanini lectures had run their course and I wanted to tap into other areas of [Frank's] expertise," said Waring. "Essentially it will make listeners more informed about what they are listening to and illuminate differences in performances."
Frank will draw upon a variety of recorded performances, from the Baroque to the 20th century, and present different interpretations of the pieces. When possible, a newly released recording will be offered for group evaluation.
Waring said the programs have a broad appeal and is hoping turnout will be high. For more information, contact Waring at (203) 622-7917.
