Virtual Round Table on the songs of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco

  1. Sunday July 12 3:00pm
Off-Campus Location

Much of his prolific output (220 songs), which the composer called “my most sincere and personal expressions,”  is rarely heard today and, until recently, had remained unrecorded. In conjunction with the release of Songs from a Lost World of Italian-Jewish Composers, Vol. III, the event will be a conversation about, and a chance to listen to, some of the composer’s settings of Italian poetry, and it will include a discussion of the context in which the songs were composed.

The following scholars and performing artists will participate:
• Aloma Bardi, musicologist, founder and director of The International Center for American Music 
• Diana Castelnuovo-Tedesco, scholar and granddaughter of the composer
• Caroline Helton, soprano, Associate Professor of Music (Voice), University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance (Blue Griffin Records: Songs from a Lost World of Italian Jewish Composers, Vol. III: Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco)
• Kathryn Goodson, collaborative pianist, University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance (Blue Griffin Records: Songs from a Lost World of Italian Jewish Composers, Vol. III: Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco)
• James Westby, musicologist, editor and translator of Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s autobiography, A Life of Music

Free and open to all
