The Washington University Department of Music presents Late Moves: Music and Creativity, a panel discussion featuring pianist Jonathan Biss on Wednesday, February 8. "How does age impact the work of creative artists? Does an artist's accumulated knowledge and experience, combined with a sense that the end of life may be near, create the conditions for especially intense or heightened expression? And how do these dynamics - common to artists of all kinds - play out in the realm of music composition? Join us for a wide-ranging discussion of "late style" creativity with visiting pianist Jonathan Biss and Washington University professors Dolores Pesce and Brian Carpenter." The performance takes place in the Goldberg Formal Lounge in the Danforth University Center on the Washington University campus. For more information, music.wustl.edu.
