Music Symposium Keynote Lecture: “Reproducing Success: The Printed Image in the Musical Enterprise of Haydn and His Contemporaries”
Thomas Tolley, Senior Lecturer in the History of Art, University of Edinburgh
The period 1750–1850 witnessed unprecedented growth in the musical marketplace. The proliferation of print technologies, the widening distribution of instruments for domestic use, and the gradual establishment of public music institutions across England and the Continent altered the patterns of circulation for music in its printed and sounding form. “Consuming Music, Commodifying Sound” investigates this long historical moment from a multiplicity of perspectives, such as the formation of consumer identity, patterns of consumption and musical style, and the commercialization of music in the context of visual culture.
This conference is sponsored by The Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Fund, the MacMillan Center, the Department of Music, the Department of History, the Center for British Art, and the Department of History of Art at Yale. For more information, contact Emily Green at email@example.com.
