What Makes Some Music "Great"?
Ultimately a question Louis cannot answer, he will try to illuminate the greatness about selected/popular concert pieces. Why do we love the Beethoven Fifth Symphony? What was some other music contemporary with this masterpiece and what makes it a masterpiece? The instructor will rely on recordings as well as his own playing in these sessions. Dr. Louis Nagel is Professor Emeritus of piano and piano literature after serving for forty-seven years on the faculty of the UM School of Music Theatre and Dance. He has concertized and lectured throughout the United States and internationally and worked collaboratively with his wife, the psychologist and musician Dr. Julie Jaffee Nagel. In "retirement" he continues to be active as a performer, lecturer, and teacher.
