Dr. Kogan has gained renown for his lecture/concerts that explore the role of music in healing and the influence of psychological factors and psychiatric and medical illness on the creative output of composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Gershwin, Bernstein and Joplin.
With a distinguished career both as a concert pianist and as a psychiatrist, Dr. Kogan is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical Center, Co-Director of the Medical Center’s Human Sexuality Program, and Artistic Director of the Weill Cornell Music and Medicine Program. Dr. Kogan has been praised for his "exquisite playing" by the New York Times, and the Boston Globe wrote that "Kogan has somehow managed to excel at the world's two most demanding professions."
