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. This season, dive into Beethoven’s riveting Appassionata piano sonata, issues around censorship and the songs of Cole Porter, and John Adams' "Shaker Loops"—a study in minimalism.

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.
