Music and Medicine
« on: July 16, 2018, 01:02:50 PM »
Interesting article I attached. When I lived in Wakefield 14+ years ago Carol Wiebe played a couple of my works in a concert. I had no idea she was an MD. I just knew her as a pianist.

Thanks for posting this Ron.  I have an interest in such subjects so will explore further this organization.
    And yes I noticed that Jonathan Biss was expanding the study of Beethoven Sonatas, so that will give me some month of study, helpful for my project.
      I am just beginning to attempt composing in Sonata form for piano. It is my first for a sonata and although I have composed for piano and pipe organ, as a clarinetist I am always a little hesitant with this "fingering stuff".  Wish me luck!  best, LA

Good luck with your studies and attempt at a sonata, LA. My "String Symphony" (under "Major New Work") was partly inspired by my study of Beethoven's piano sonatas. His expanded language and use of form to communicate is still relevant 200 years later.

Thanks.  And I will keep in mind the influence of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas as I continue listening to your new work for String Orchestra.  LA
