Interpretations of Music | Benjamin Zander, conductor
Sat February 15 @ 10:00 am
Benjamin Zander’s Saturday morning Interpretations Classes are among the most extraordinary – and, thanks to video, most widely seen – of all the conductor’s musical activities. During these classes, which are open to the public, Mr. Zander guides highly accomplished young musicians who live or study in the Boston area to more communicative, more alive interpretations of a huge range of classical masterworks. The audience at these events feels very much a part of the process of transformation that unfolds, week after week.
Mr. Zander’s famed communication skills and lifetime immersion in all aspects of musical performance make him a transformative musical coach who guides and inspires players of all instruments to a deeper understanding of what the music is actually asking of the performer and how to communicate that with the greatest intensity and authenticity to the audience.
These classes give everyone involved a window into how music can and should be performed in order to engage, stimulate and inspire the audience at the deepest level.
Free and open to the public, tickets are not required for this event.
