Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) is universally acknowledged as the greatest child prodigy and greatest genius in music history. What was the impact of his complex personality on his creative output? Did Mozart suffer from Tourette's Disorder or Asperger's Syndrome? Dr. Richard Kogan, psychiatrist and virtuoso concert pianist, is uniquely qualified to explore these questions. He will illustrate his talk by performing some of Mozart's most glorious music. This program will enable participants to:
• Recognize the psychological factors that influenced Mozart’s artistic development.
• Understand some of the fundamental concepts about creativity.
