MEDICINE + MUSIC: A CARDIAC AFFAIR
There is an almost uncontested romantic notion that mental illness and creativity are somehow linked. While researchers have endlessly debated the finer points of this argument, we can all agree that eminent creators have often triumphed over their suffering – both physical and mental – by transforming it, dissecting it, reimagining it, and ultimately composing it anew. Join us in a celebration of what Schumann called “awesome spiritual resistance” in the music of the great sufferers: Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Mahler, Shostakovich and Schumann himself.
