Humanities West presents: Greenberg Among Friends: Mozart

We worship the great composers as gods, thanks to the magnificent musical gifts they have given us. But that same worship can put their all-too-human music at arm’s length by rendering it as something divine. This series will explore the lives, times, personalities and music of Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms in an effort to understand the living, breathing people behind their music, people who were – and remain – utterly indivisible from their music. In this first in a new Humanities West series, Robert Greenberg lectures and Lino Rivera plays Mozart on piano.

HUMANITIES WEST transports you across time and around the globe for colorful perspectives on the many sources of our modern cultures. Serving the Bay Area since 1983, our diverse lecture/performance series illuminates people and places at the intersections of history, fine art, the performing arts, social history, politics, and philosophy of the arts. Our unique multidisciplinary approach is designed to entertain and educate the intellectually curious, whether you are an arts lover, scholar, student, travel buff, or life-long learner.
