Shifting Musical Aesthetics Reflect History: Germans to French
Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms...music history tends to focus on the German composers. However, individualism and nationalism encouraged later composers to assert their own aesthetics and cultural/nationalistic perspective through their music.
In this program, we will survey the history of classical music from its root to the 20th century. The three French composers, Debussy, Saint-Saens and Poulenc, will be compared and contrasted to Beethoven and Brahms as examples of those who established their identity partially as a reaction to the German dominance in classical music.
The program will be presented by Ensemble MATIMA, whose mission is to promote music as a universal language that can help us transcend our differences through a communal sensory experience.
