Dvorak The Happy Soul

May 9, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Classical music historian and Essex favorite, Jeffrey Engel, returns to present a lecture on “Dvorak, The Happy Soul” on Tuesday, May 9th at 1:30 p.m. Dvorak was the happiest and least neurotic of the Romantics. He was barely literate and hardly a deep thinker (locomotives were his chief passion outside of music). The cheery Czech was greatly influenced by his native folk culture which inspired him to write a plethora of tuneful compositions. Jeffrey Engel will detail Dvorak’s life and play excerpts of his music.

Jeffrey Engel, adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut in Torrington, is a music historian and orchestral cellist who trained in Paris and Austria before returning to the U.S. to teach. He was selected as one of the 50 most influential people in Litchfield County, Connecticut by Litchfield Magazine in 2010.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, or to register, please call the Essex Library at (860) 767-1560. The Essex library is located at 33 West Ave. in Essex.
