Following his popular Robert Schumann presentation as part of the Houston Symphony’s 2020 Schumann Festival, Juilliard-trained concert pianist and Harvard-educated psychiatrist Dr. Richard Kogan returns to Jones Hall with a deep-dive into one of classical music’s most fascinating figures, Ludwig van Beethoven. Combining his psychology and music backgrounds, Dr. Kogan presents insights into Beethoven’s life and mind and explores Beethoven’s creative evolution through performances of early, middle and late piano sonatas. Dr. Kogan also collaborates with Symphony musicians for a performance of the final movement from Beethoven’s Piano Trio No. 4, Opus 11 in B flat major. Presented in partnership with Houston Methodist, this event celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Center for Performing Arts Medicine at Houston Methodist.
