Mozart 2006: Classical Music and the Modern World

The British Academy, 10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1
Saturday, 28th January, 2006

A conference convened by Professor Nick Cook, FBA, Royal Holloway,
University of London

Saturday, 28th January, 2006
10.30am - 6.00pm
10 Conference Fee (5 concessions) 

The British Academy, 
10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1 

If anybody epitomizes classical music, it is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the
250th anniversary of whose birth falls on the day before this one-day
conference. A group of distinguished British and American speakers will
address different dimensions of Mozart's continuing presence in the modern
world, ranging from the writing of music history through recorded
performances to popular culture and the media. The aim will be not only to
bring modern perspectives to bear upon this most archetypal of composers,
but also to use Mozart as a starting point for exploring key aspects of
the modern world: the role of yesterday's classics today, the relationship
of elite and popular culture, the idea of genius.
