One event on Wed, Apr 10, 2024 at 7:00 pm
In advance of Princeton University Concerts’ “Healing with Music” event Anxiety, Depression, and Music with pianist Jonathan Biss and writer Adam Haslett, begin the exploration with Biss’ audio book Unquiet: My Life with Beethoven into Haslett’s bestselling novel Imagine Me Gone through this book club presented in partnership with the Princeton Public Library.
Imagine Me Gone is the unforgettable story of what unfolds when, in an act of love and faith, Margaret decides to marry John despite his crippling depression.
With Unquiet, a free Audible Words + Music series book, Jonathan Biss, the world-renowned pianist and critical Beethoven interpreter of our time, reveals his grapple with anxiety in the face of “living with Beethoven.” Unquiet both begins and ends with Jonathan Biss staring down the daunting complexity and infinite majesty of Beethoven’s last piano sonatas. But between these two points, the singular pianist has traversed a world of healing.
