Musical Odd Couples

COM faculty member and pianist Jim Stopher explores unusual musical pairings, including a two-movement Beethoven sonata, two short works of Schubert, and two wildly different original compositions. The mismatched afternoon concludes with a collision between the Baroque and Romantic periods in Brahms’s epic Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel.
