Dr. Antonio Damasio, director of USC’s Brain and Creativity Institute, is our special guest. Author of the bestselling books Descartes’ Error, The Feeling of What Happens and Looking for Spinoza, Damasio is at the forefront of cutting edge research on the evolution of human consciousness. The concert features an evocative Bruce Adolphe work that takes its title from Damasio’s most recent book, Self Comes to Mind, and pairs two distinct sonic colors, the solo cello and percussion. To conclude the evening, Damasio deepens your understanding of Beethoven’s moving Septet in E-flat major for Strings and Woodwinds with readings from the composer’s personal letters.
