19th Century Global Sound: Musical Exoticism


August 1, 2019

Shepherd School of Music Professor, David Ferris returns to WIH this semester to explore 19th century European composers—Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Verdi, Chopin, Mahler, and others—who were all fascinated with indigenous music. While these composers did not have access to this folk music first hand, they did incorporate what they did hear, and imagined, into their music. This class meets on Wednesdays at 1:00 beginning September 11.
