Music is all around us; music knows no linguistic or geopolitical boundaries; music moves us all. Music is often spontaneous, but some compositions are carefully crafted with deep thought about every exquisite detail. We can all sing and whistle, but music has also been wedded to technology for thousands of years. And while all music proceeds in time, there are works in which such a continuum is multi-dimensional.
An acclaimed pianist known for his interpretations of Beethoven and new music, Dr Robert Taub, new Music Director of The Arts Institute, speaks passionately and eloquently on the importance and power of music from any period.
Bob has played as guest soloist with some of the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors, including the MET Orchestra in Carnegie Hall, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony.
He plans to use his expertise in performance, concert programming and academia to make Plymouth’s music scene as ‘vibrant and as great’ as it can be.
