Event description
Psychiatrist and pianist Richard Kogan will lead a lecture and concert exploring creative minds, and the symphony that is music and medicine

About this Event

Psychiatrist and concert pianist Richard Kogan is renowned for his lecture/concerts that explore the influence of psychological factors and psychiatric and medical illness on the creative output of composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Gershwin, Bernstein, and Joplin. Sharing insight into some of the most creative minds, he opens his audiences’ eyes to the symphony that is humanity, music, and medicine.

This performance will explore how Polish composer Frederic Chopin grappled with pulmonary disease and exile from his beloved Poland yet became one of the greatest composers of piano music in history, focusing on the power of resilience. Dr. Kogan’s insights about the practice and cultivation of resilience will offer urgent lessons to those who seek to foster and sustain the well-being and health of individuals and society.
