School of Music piano faculty Dmitri Vorobiev presents a series of four educational, entertaining and highly opinionated lectures. This course will focus on the life and works of Ludwig van Beethoven, lesser known facts about him and his influence on the development of classical music. The class promises to be filled with drama, humor and highly opinionated statements. There will be listening assignments each class to be discussed during each session.
There is no requirement for any musical background for this course. Those who attend will gain a deeper understanding of this pivotal figure and enhanced enjoyment of classical music in general, and Beethoven in particular.
The lectures will be given in two parts, with a break and refreshments.
A native of Moscow, Russia, Dmitri Vorobiev began his piano studies when he was five. He first came to international attention after winning the Casagrande International Piano Competition in Italy in 1994, followed by performances at the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto and numerous recitals throughout Italy. He joined the UNCSA Music faculty in 2017 as Associate Professor of Piano. Previously, he was on the faculty of Northern Iowa School of Music and International Music Academy in Pilsen.
