Reflections in Music – Bruce Wolosoff

Event Navigation

As John Lennon famously said, “amateurs borrow, professionals steal” (itself stolen from T.S. Elliot’s “amateur poets borrow; mature poets steal.”)

Composers are often inspired by other art forms, but most frequently they are inspired by other music. Often these influences are unconscious and the composers themselves may be unaware of them, and at other times there is a more deliberate “borrowing” which may or may not be acknowledged by the composer!

This program by Bruce Wolosoff will feature music from Bach inspired by Villa-Lobos, music by Ravel written in the style of Borodin, and a musical portrait of Chopin by Robert Schumann. A highlight of the evening will be the world premiere of Bruce Wolosoff’s epic Variations on House of the Rising Sun.

An evening not to be missed!
