Nakamichi Concert Celebrates Love
February 11, 2013
The Martin Institute will host the next Nakamichi Concert Series at 8 p.m. on February 12. Supported in part by the Father Eugene Green Foundation, the event is free and open to the public.
"Love Changes Everything" will be the theme of the upcoming concert, coinciding with Valentine's Day two days later. The evening will feature the work of Austrian composer and painter Arnold Schoenberg and German composer and pianist Johannes Brahms. Performing their work will be Michael Korn and five other pianists. The night will feature Schoenberg's Transfigured Night and Brahms' Sextet No. 1 in B flat Minor.
Both pieces use love as an underlying theme, correlating with the time of year and the time when the composers began writing their pieces. Schoenberg and Brahms were young men when they composed their performances, and were inspired by love in their composition. Schoenberg read a poem of two struggling lovers to relate in his music, while Brahms himself was in the midst of an affair during his writing.
