The Profile of the Talk
One of the finest chamber music composition ever . . . Schubert at his best.
Contrary to Akram’s previous practice of analyzing the form of the work in detail, he will walk through the movements, talking about what happens and showing it happening . . .

Akram Najjar

A graduate of AUB in Physics and Mathematics (1966). By 1969, he completed a degree in Electronic Engineering in University of Hertfordshire, UK. His professional life was spent in Information Technology and organizational management. He spent a lot of time on reengineering business and public sector processes.

When Akram was 11, he had a problem with his knee which necessitated his staying in bed for 6 months. To keep him busy, his mother moved their record player to his room and that is when he fell in love with classical music. Akram never studied music, academically. However, it interested him so much that he took an analytic view of classical music always insisting that works must be understood to be really appreciated.
