Anthony Tommasini, classical music critic for the New York Times, discusses his book, "The Indispensable Composers: A Personal Guide," with a masterclass on how to listen and understand what music does to us.
Jeremy Eichler, Boston Globe’s Classical Music Critic, moderates. Tommasini will perform a few of his favorite selections during the event.
