Tuning In: Classical Music and the Creative Mind (Live Performance and Discussion)

Setup

Our social nature is a major driver of our creativity: We constantly strive to engage and surprise each other, our inventiveness giving us reasons to tune in. Drawing on The Runaway Species: How Human Creativity Remakes the World, the book he co-authored with neuroscientist David Eagleman, composer Anthony Brandt takes us inside Beethoven’s string quartets to examine what makes classical music such a vivid and compelling model of creative thinking. Featuring live demonstrations by musicians from the Aspen Music Festival, Brandt shows how Beethoven’s inventiveness is a window into the human mind and an overt example of the creativity that we all share. Featured musicians: Samuel Park and Shellie Brown, violins; Wenlong Huang, viola; and Katherine Audas, cello.
