The Music and the Mind of Beethoven
An Evening of Beethoven
Spend a rich and engaging evening in the elegant surroundings of Rodef Shalom, with a sumptuous meal and performance.

Join PPC in contemplating the mind and music of Beethoven.  Known as the quintessential "mad genius," Beethoven will provide a rich portrait of psychological complexity matched by the beauty and complexity of his compositions.

Deafness is a hardship for anyone, but for a musician it is catastrophic. When Ludwig van Beethoven first experienced loss of hearing as a young man, he contemplated suicide, but he made the decision to resist his suicidal impulses and instead fulfill his artistic destiny.

Harvard-trained psychiatrist and Juilliard-trained concert pianist Dr. Richard Kogan will give a lecture/recital that examines how Beethoven became a greater composer once locked inside the silent world of his imagination.

Dr. Kogan will explore the psychological basis of Beethoven's creative life and will illuminate the discussion with performances of some of Beethoven's most extraordinary music.
