Performativity, Poetry & Creation: Investigating the Creative Space of

Live Art Song Performance


Date: Tuesday, 18 May, 2010

Venue: Chancellor's Hall, Senate House, University of London

Conveners: Dr Kathryn Whitney (Institute of Musical Research, Royal

Welsh College of Music & Drama)

Professor Amanda Glauert (Kingston University)


This study day will investigate what singers and pianists do creatively

when they perform art song in concert. Focussing specifically on the

“performative” (or live) quality of art song in performance, we will

explore the structural, generative, and creative possibilities of the

“lyric chain” of song: the web of relationships between poet,

composer, performers and audience that is animated uniquely in a live

art song performance event.
