Research Seminar: Musical & Literary Approaches to the Operas of Jean-Philippe Rameau

Friday, 2 March 2018 - 5:30pm

This two-hour seminar will explore the operas of the leading French composer and music theorist of the French Enlightenment, Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764). Join us as we unlock some of the enigmas presented by Rameau’s works through the integration of literary and musical analytical techniques. This combined approach will bring us closer to these extraordinary works and help us to communicate them more fluently to a modern audience. 

Presentations will be given by Dr Jonathan Williams and Dr Jonathan Patterson.
