Wednesdays

Feb. 6, 13

6:00 - 7:30 pm        

This class is designed to demonstrate how the soundwaves of music effects our emotion and our spirits.  An example of this is Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, especially toward the end of the symphony – the grand finale.

There are five (5) lessons in this course.  The first two (2) lessons will focus on 18th century music, including Beethoven’s 9th Symphony which he will perform on the piano, along with Chopin’s Two Piano Sonata’s Pan.  There will also be a discussion on the subject of Fredric Nietczsche on his views of spirituality and how music affects the soul.

The next three (3) lessons will be entering into late 19th century, early 20’s with Gustuv Marlan, an Austrian composer.  Marlan composed nine (9) symphonies, and these symphonies are larger than life size, universes speaking to each other because they are very powerful pieces.  They speak to our hearts.  

Arthur Kostuk started playing piano at the age of 13, which he says he was a late bloomer.  In the early 1970’s, Arthur was living in Vienna, Austria, studying piano for almost five (5) years at the University. He loved playing at the Johan Strauss Memorial because all the great musicians/composers such as Braham’s, Beethoven, Strauss, and Marlan played there.  All of these composers were from Vienna.

1n 1985, Arthur entered a competition in Israel, called the Piano International Competition, otherwise known as the Rubinstein.  There were 250 musicians who competed, and they gave out awards to four (4) 1st place winners, and four (4) 2nd place winners, and Arthur was chosen as one of the four (4) 1st place winners, and you will see why!  

Arthur has been playing piano for 32 years around the world, and many of his recitals have been in Berlin, Germany under the direction of James Levine, recitals in Chicago and Seattle, and he is a recipient of Carnegie Hall in New York performing solo in front of 1200-1400 people.  Imagine being a part of an informational view of music from the past, present, and future from someone who is extremely knowledgeable, and having the wonderful privilege of listening to beautiful recitals from a musician who is world renown in our own small community!  Reserve your place today!
