MUSICAL REFLECTIONS - A journey across genres 🎵🎵

Hosted by: ANU Community Music Centre

Tuesday 4 June 2024

Apeiron Baroque; Revisiting musical assumptions in Baroque and Classical music
This is the fourth lecture in the series of talks on different musical genres, with representation of various musical styles, composers and topics.

The field of Early Music (historical performance practice) is much more than playing old music on old instruments! In the 300 years since the Baroque era, there have been vast changes in society, language, and aesthetics; and Early Music is an attempt to rediscover the contemporary ideas, context, and techniques in order to better understand how to interpret the "blobs on the page". In this presentation, Apeiron Baroque will give a general overview of some of these concepts, and the way that we employ them in our interpretations of music from the past.

After the talk, there will be a short lunchtime concert.

Presenters: John Ma and Marie Searles
