Mostly Music Series

Mostly Music is a unique concert series whose purpose is to better acquaint audiences not only with the music, but also with the lives and artistic development of the Western world's greatest composers. Between musical compositions, actors read excerpts of personal letters written by the featured composers around the same period

as the music to be performed. These composers were geniuses but they too lived with all the joys, frailties and frustrations common to humanity. The concerts feature Lynn Conservatory’s faculty members, students and guest artists. Mostly Music is conceived and hosted by Marshall Turkin and staged by Director of Theatre Arts Jan McArt.

November 15 – 7:30 p.m. (Thursday)

Mostly Music: Mid-Europa/USA Connection

People are familiar with famous names such as Mozart and Beethoven, but there were other European composers such as Smetena and Dohnanyi who, while less well-known, wrote masterworks and were among Europeans who influenced generations of American composers, whose works will also be featured. Concert repertoire includes Dohnanyi’s Serenade op. 10. Carol Cole (violin), Ralph Fielding (viola), David Cole (cello) and conservatory students from the studio of Roberta Rust who will perform works for two pianos, eight-hands: the one movement Sonata in E minor and the delightful Rondo in C by Smetana.

Amarnick‐Goldstein Concert Hall

Tickets: $20

January 24 – 7:30 p.m. (Thursday)

Mostly Music: Debussy

A crucial figure in the transition to the modern era in Western music, Claude Debussy rema

ins one of the most famous and influential of all composers. He was the most prominent figure in developing “impressionistic” music although he intensely disliked the term when applied to his own music, which often reflected the activities and turbulence in his life in French literary circles. The concert includes Debussy’s Petite Suite: Phillip Evans and Roberta Rust, piano.

Amarnick‐Goldstein Concert Hall

Tickets: $20

February 21 – 7:30 p.m. (Thursday)

Mostly Music: Mozart

From his prodigy years performing for the royal families of Europe to his many masterworks composed in his brief 36 years of life, one of the greatest geniuses in music was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Hearing Mozart’s letters read, in addition to performances of his music (including his Fantasy in D minor, K. 397 and Adagio in B minor, K. 540 performed by Roberta Rust, piano), the concert will offer a revealing and poignant insight into the man and his very difficult adult life.
