Fellowship focus: Revisiting 19th century Austro-German music, its implications and continuing relevance – taking Johannes Brahms as a case study – through performances, discussions and workshops. 


This Fellowship revisits 19th century Austro-German music – taking Johannes Brahms as a case study – acknowledging its implication in some of history’s darkest chapters, justifying its current relevance, and resisting its annexation by an ascendant far right. During three visits to Surrey, Dr Scott will bring a performative dimension to Surrey’s Institute of Austrian and German Music Research with a series of lectures, performances, discussions and workshops, including a public symposium featuring both performances and presentations.
