The Composer – the Singer – the Listener. How do We Interpret a Musical Text? Part 1

Description

A COURSE OF LECTURES "MUSICAL HERMENEUTICS: DO WE KNOW HOW TO LISTEN TO MUSIC?"

April 9, Tuesday, 19:30
The Composer – the Singer – the Listener. How do We Interpret a Musical Text? Part 1
Alexei Trifonov

How do the composer, the performer and the listener perceive a musical score? Visitors will be able to listen to a great number of works in various interpretations. Popular clichés will be discussed at the lectures, for example, whether we shall apply value judgments and the progressivist approach to works of composers and interpretations by performers. Is the most relevant interpretation, which is relevant to the composer's idea, possible?

Entrance is free, space is limited, please arrive early
