CCRMA Stage - the Knoll on Stanford campus, 660 Lomita Dr
Concert pianist Misha Dichter and neurologist Frank Wilson discuss the love-hate relationship of virtuosity and technical proficiency in this special guest lecture of the Anatomy of Movement (Ortho 222) class, entitled "The Performer as Artist & Observer". The lecture is part of an interdisciplinary course that examines human movement from perspectives as varied as engineering, medicine, and the performing arts. Mr. Dichter will speak to his own experience with a career-threatening hand contracture, his surgery, and his recovery. Dr. Wilson will probe the role of the brain in achieving mastery, as well as its ability to overcome - or become overwhelmed - with injury and impairment.
The lecture is open to the public, and is sponsored by the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and CCRMA.
Mr. Dichter will play a full program at at Dinkelspiel Auditorium Wednesday evening Feb 17th at 8pm. He and Professor Amy Ladd, Anatomy of Movement course chair, will hold a discussion after the performance. Tickets are available through Stanford Lively Arts, http://livelyarts.stanford.edu/event.php?code=DICH.
