Talks on Western Classical Music

Godrej Dance Theatre
Tuesday, 27th – 6.00 pm
Stuart-Liff Collection Library
Friday, 30th – 4.00 pm


An NCPA Presentation

“Western classical music is heavy.”
“The music of Beethoven and Mozart is difficult to understand.”

There are several misconceptions about this rich tradition of music. But from the chords of Beethoven’s “Moonlight” sonata which inspired the hit Beatles’ track ‘Because’ to countless films where snippets of classical compositions have heightened the joy, drama or pathos, we are surrounded by classical music. In a new series of talks, Dr. Cavas Bilimoria will take participants through musical concepts, the lives of composers and their famous works, sprinkled with examples of recorded music. 

In the second talk, he will discuss Sonata form, a technique of composition which when understood enables listeners to predict how a piece of classical music will unfold even before they hear it. 

Happy listening!
