Music On The Mind Lecture 2: Artistry And The Ear Of The Beholder

A/Prof Dorottya Fabian

The Salon, Melbourne Recital Centre

Listeners and critics are quick to decide who the greatest interpreters of classical music are. But the evidence of sound recordings tells a sobering story regarding changes of taste and expert opinion. This is nowhere clearer than in the history of performing J. S. Bach's music. In this presentation Dorottya Fabian will discuss the implications for our understanding of music's expressive and emotional power. Following Dorottya Fabian's talk, there will be a facilitated panel discussion on the topic.

This talk forms part of Melbourne Recital Centre's "Music and The Mind" series, which explores the relationship between music and the human brain and the related links to social wellbeing, participation, learning and development and the role of music in our contemporary communities.
