How Do We Make Sense of Genius?

Wednesday, Dec 12, 2012 6:30p
Heard Museum Downtown Phoenix, AZ

Boston Globe music critic Matthew Guerrieri, author of The First Four Notes, a book about Beethoven’s most famous work, discusses the mysteries of genius and the human imagination. Can you name the following piece of music: Da-da-da-DUM. Yes it’s Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. The Fifth may be the most famous piece of music ever written, because we’re mystified by what distinguishes the sublime from the average, and the workings of genius.
