“Where words fail, music speaks.”—Hans Christian Andersen


Enter the brilliant world of composers who forever altered the course of musical history and changed our lives profoundly. Their stunning impact cannot be measured—it’s too vast to encompass. Pianist Jacquelyne Silver will examine in depth the dazzling brilliance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Frédéric Chopin, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, and Louis Moreau Gottschalk—along with their colleagues. We will examine musical styles and the way each one heard the magical messages that made them unique. You’ll love this series and will come away with a new understanding that will enhance your deep appreciation of music!
