Beneath the surface of George Gershwin’s music is a complex personality. Dr. Richard Kogan, a Juilliard trained concert pianist and Harvard educated psychiatrist, explores the impact of psychological factors and psychiatric illness on the creative output of the great Jewish American composer George Gershwin. The evening will be illuminated by piano performances of Gershwin masterpieces, including “Rhapsody in Blue.” Dr. Kogan has a distinguished career both as a concert pianist and as a psychiatrist. He has been praised for his “eloquent, compelling, and exquisite playing” by The New York Times, and The Boston Globe wrote that “Kogan has somehow managed to excel at the world’s two most demanding professions.” He has gained renown for his lectures and recitals that explore the role of music in healing and the influence of psychological factors on the creative output of composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, George Gershwin, and Leonard Bernstein.
