Pianist Javor Bracic – Art of Listening

Have you ever wondered what makes classical music so beautiful and poignant? Did you ever get the feeling that you didn’t understand music enough to fully enjoy a concert? The Art of Listening is perfect for you! The Art of Listening is an interactive tour through the essential works, concepts, and characters of classical music. Mingling live performance and collaborative inquiry, each session of this unique conversation-concert takes the audience on a deep dive into the rich inner world of a chosen masterwork. After a “cold opening” performance of the work by award-winning pianist Javor Bracic (and guests), audience members are invited to jump in with in-the-moment thoughts and impressions. Building on the audience’s insights, Bracic skillfully facilitates a discovery of the work’s emotional narrative and its underlying theoretical concepts, illuminating the poetry, nuance, and daring innovation that give the composition its power. A discussion of historical, cultural, and biographical context offers further dimension, and poses questions about how and why the piece might still be relevant to our lives today. After the discussion, the piece is performed a final time in order to allow the audience to listen and experience it in an entirely new way. Mr. Bračić has started a series of conversation-recitals under the title The Art of Listening in order to promote the understanding and appreciation of classical music. He has given over thirty such recitals and was praised by the audience for his “contagious enthusiasm” and “unique ability to elucidate imagery both as a performer and teacher.”
