The combination of the lecture and piano playing to illustrate different parts of the talk was truly joyful. What a great break in my day.
Well done incorporating various pieces, and introducing contemporaries and their impacts.
Peter Medford's seminars on music are exceptional, and are wonderful additions to Context's offerings. These are not just straight lectures on musicians or music topics—they become personal reflections, and a happy sharing of knowledge about a subject he truly loves.
Everything Peter discusses is brought to life by his playing or singing it. Musical terms become understandable and real by hearing them; one musician’s influence on another is made clear by hearing them both and having him point things out in the music.
His love , knowledge and enthusiasm are matched by an exceptional ability to make the complex clear, and his enthusiasm is a gift.
I’ve known music well all my life, and I’ve gained greatly from his talks!
Peter's program was a wonderful overview of Bach's life and musical genius as well as an explanation of his influence on other composers and other composers' influence on him.
