Upcoming Programs

Music Inspired by Music

a solo piano performance by Bruce Wolosoff


As John Lennon famously said, "amateurs borrow, professionals steal"

(itself stolen from T.S. Elliot's "amateur poets borrow; mature poets steal.")

Composers are often inspired by other art forms, but most frequently they are inspired by other music. Often these influences are unconscious and the composers themselves may be unaware of them, and at other times there is a more deliberate "borrowing" which may or may not be acknowledged by the composer!

This program by Bruce Wolosoff is of music in which the composer fully acknowledges their musical influences, and includes music inspired by Bach by Villa-Lobos, music by Ravel written in the style of Borodin, a musical portrait of Chopin by Robert Schumann, and the program will feature the world premiere of Bruce Wolosoff's epic "Variations on House of the Rising Sun"
