Countless pieces of music, from grand operas to country ballads, have been inspired by the folly of love. Love that goes to our heads, gets under our skin, bewitches, bothers, bewilders... Love that drives us to distraction and beyond. Sometimes ill-fated, sometimes unrequited, sometimes scandalous, always obsessive and intoxicating. Pianist Lara Downes has curated a program of piano masterpieces inspired by romantic dramas from Romeo and Juliet to Robert and Clara Schumann, and featuring the West Coast premiere of Mad Love, a new work by composer Daniel Felsenfeld riffing on iconic rock and pop songs inspired by this crazy kind of love.
