One of the most significant cards in the Tarot trumps, The Wheel of Fortune emerges from elements as diverse as Platonic philosophy and the Medieval fascination with Goddess Fortuna/Dame Fortune. This lecture will explore the history of the “wheel” motif, its origins in Medieval times, and its appearance in the Tarot deck. We will also consider the Great Wheel’s influence on the arts, including literature, music, and dance.
Join us for an historical investigation into the development of the instrument from mid-19th century to mid-20th century, the most celebrated virtuoso pianists, and the surge of women pianists. PowerPoint presentation will include a few brief piano repertoire selections.
