Tuesday 21st April

Introductory Seminar

For all MMus and PhD students (readings to be circulated before Easter).
Location: Building 4 Room 4055, 11:00-12:30.

Formal Presentation: "Listening to Hugo Wolf between the World Wars."

This paper examines the ways in which the songs of Hugo Wolf (1860-1903) were interpreted during the interwar period. My starting point is the return to London concert platforms of singing in german in 1920; I then go on to consider interactions between live and recorded performances, through the example of the Hugo Wolf Society and the London Lieder Club in the 1930s. The ways in which Wolf's lieder were programmed, marketed, performed, and heard, helped develop a new understanding of the composer's achievements. They also exemplfied, if not exactly a transformation of musical taste, then an attempt to reconfigure German classical music's standing in British society.

For all MMus students, PhD students and all staff.
Members of the public are warmly invited.
Location: Building 58 Room 1023, 16:00-17:30.
