Music: Can Philosophical Concepts Be Expressed Without Words?

Steven Machtinger, Attorney; Violist, the San Joaquin Quintet

Monday Night Philosophy presents both words and music to investigate whether music can express concepts without words. Machtinger and the San Joaquin Quintet will explore this question through the chamber music of Mozart, particularly the clarinet quintet he wrote late in his life. Steve's theory and the Quintet's performance will be followed by a Socratic dialogue with Hammond and an open discussion with the audience.
