If rock stars die young, does it follow that classical composers live long and prosper? Though it takes a while to master the techniques of writing classical music, many great classical works were written by people in their twenties and thirties who met untimely deaths. This recital celebrates the work of composers who left this earth too early including Henry Purcell, W. A. Mozart, Franz Schubert, Georges Bizet, and George Gershwin.
