Theorizing Ensemble Performance Practice: New Paradigms
A research seminar by Artist in Residence Anna Scott.
Drawing upon the fields of performance criticism, philosophy, phenomenology, musicology, and early recording practices, this lecture examines the tenets of modern chamber music performance norms, and the urgency of recent efforts to expand and even escape them.
Anna Scott works at Leiden University's Academy of Creative and Performing Arts and the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, and specializes in nineteenth-century performance practices, challenging traditions of performance, listening, and understanding of canonic solo, chamber, Lied, and orchestral repertoire from Schubert to Debussy. In her Surrey University Residency she explores these performance perspectives with staff, students, and the wider public, focussing on ensemble performance, creative recording practices, and cultural-political issues of music and conflict
This research seminar is open to the public. All are welcome to attend, free of charge, no booking required. The event will also be available live on Zoom. To receive the Zoom link, please sign up by emailing Jeremy Barham by Wednesday 7 December 12 noon, at email@example.com
