Distinguished Music Theory Speaker Series: Prof. Brian Hyer, University of Wisconsin-Madison
- Friday February 21 5:00pm
Brian Hyer’s research involves the construction (and reconstruction) of historical modes of cognition for music of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, an initiative that blurs boundaries between music theory, music history, and music criticism. Since arriving in Madison, his main concern in the classroom has been to situate the study of music within the broader realm of the humanities, a commitment that has culminated in a new undergraduate music-theory curriculum, implemented in the fall of 1997.
