R104 Summer 2020 Enjoying Classical Music
Mondays, 11:50–1:15, June 22–July 20, No class July 6
Instructor: Kosmo Tatalias
Each week, in addition to several shorter, virtuosic works, this course will sample extensively one longer masterpiece—a symphony, a sonata, a chamber work, or an opera.? Learn how to better enjoy classical music while watching videos of the musicians performing, and sometimes explaining, the compositions.
Kosmo Tatalias is a retired computer scientist and PhD mathematician with a deep, lifelong interest in classical music, especially piano, chamber music, and opera. He hopes to share with you his love of the classical repertoire and his curiosity about different musicians’ interpretations of the same work.
