Celebrity Series of Boston has presented What Makes It Great?© with Rob Kapilow 38 times since its Boston debut in 1997.
This performance will feature Rob Kabilow guiding the audience past the ghosts of Haydn and Mozart that linger while showing how, with this work, Beethoven boldly introduced himself to the world as a symphonic composer.
Kapilow was recently features on PBS NewsHour with Jeffrey Brown. Watch the video here.
Rob Kapilow is a graduate of the Yale School of Music and the Eastman School of Music, and is an accomplished pianist. He has brought the joy and wonder of classical music to audiences of all ages and backgrounds, opening their ears to musical experiences and helping them to listen actively. The reach and diversity of his interactive events is considerable, both geographically and culturally: from Native American tribal communities to inner-city high school students and from children barely out of diapers to musicologists long out of Ivy League programs. Mr. Kapilow’s popularity and appeal are reflected in notable engagements: on NBC’s “Today Show” in conversation with Katie Couric, in a program for broadcast on PBS’s “Live From Lincoln Center” in January 2008; and in his books, All You Have To Do Is Listen and What Makes It Great? Kapilow’s What Makes It Great?® (WMIG) made its debut on NPR’s Performance Today nearly 20 years ago, and with its accessible ten-minute format it quickly attracted a wide base of fans and followers.

NEC Philharmonia is New England Conservatory’s top orchestra.

BEETHOVEN: Symphony No.1
