DFDavid Finckel Presents Music, Musicians, and the Industry

For his second year of special activities at Stony Brook, David Finckel, former cellist of the Emerson String Quartet, shares his vast experience in a lecture series that approaches becoming a professional musician from a variety of directions. Beginning with an in-depth reveal of his work as an arts administrator, the lecture topics move ecletically to include artistic analysis and the life stories of legendary performers, interpretive techniques available to all musicians, the latest in music and the media, and a musical journey through the life of Beethoven.
