Oneness and Otherness: Frontiers of Musical Empathy

3:00 PM  - 4:30 PM
Sunday Nov 5, 2017
Mairs Concert Hall, Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center, Music Building

Join performer-scholars Marié Abe (Boston University), Mark Mazullo (Macalester College), and Matthew Rahaim (University of Minnesota) for a lively discussion about, and musical demonstration of, three case studies in musical empathy. Subjects will range from the piano sonatas of Beethoven, to the master teacher-student relationship in Hindustani vocal music, to the contemporary phenomenon of chindon-ya, a live musical advertisement practice in Japan. What lies behind our claims to connect with others through music? Is there value in the preservation, through musical encounters, of difference?
