Department/Organization: Emory University Department of Music
Location: Harland Cinema
Time: 3:30 PM
Date: Apr 2, 2017
This is a lecture-recital by an honors student in music that will include a program of female composers, including Barbara Strozzi’s Lagrime mie, Libby Larsen’s De Toda la Eternidad, and Fanny Hensel’s works from Op. 9. The lecture portion will give an overview of her thesis on the male gaze in art song, and the power of the female composer and female poet to subvert the negative effects of male-dominated portrayals of women by representing and reconstructing the female voice.
