In response to domestic coronavirus developments, Stanford University is strongly discouraging all large-scale university gatherings, effective March 4 through May 15. Stanford Live, in compliance with the university’s decision, is moving to cancel large-scale performances within this time frame. This performance has been canceled—read more.

Everyone’s favorite down-to-earth explainer of all types of music returns to Stanford Live for three performances. In the first part of each performance, Kapilow illustrates key points of the music and its creators. Then, the full piece is performed. To top off the experience, Kapilow and the musicians take part in a lively and in-depth Q&A with the audience.

In this intimate Bing Studio presentation, Kapilow dives into composer John Adams' Shaker Loops, which will be performed by the St. Lawrence String Quartet, violinist Helen Kim, cellist Robert Howard, and double bassist Samuel Carl Adams.

Other performances in the 2019-20 What Makes it Great? series include Beethoven's Appassionata Sonata and the music of Cole Porter.

Each season, Rob Kapilow readily engages in our season themes, revealing directions we would never have thought of. His insight into how minimalism became a "culture war" between composers in the 1970s sets up a wonderful platform to examine works by John Adams, Steve Reich and post-minimalist Max Richter. In another take on culture wars, Kapilow takes us on a journey through mid-century moralism and censorship via the witty and sometimes risqué songs of Cole Porter.
