Psychoanalyzing the Great Composers

Nov 18, 2016

Ludwig Van Beethoven

Today we discuss music and the mind with a man who is an expert in both. Dr. Richard Kogan is a psychiatrist as well as a world-renowned concert pianist. He is known for his presentations on the psychology of the great composers--presentations that are half lecture and half recital, with Dr. Kogan illustrating his points by playing passages of music. Dr. Kogan is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Weill-Cornell Medical Center in New York City, where he is Artistic Director of the Music and Medicine Program. He will be performing at Goucher College tomorrow, and with the BSO on Sunday.
