Library Webinar: Did Bach want us to cry?
February 23, 2022 @ 20:00 - 21:30euro6
It is not a secret that classical music can make us shiver from joy or cry from grief that it expresses. But was it actually the idea? Was it the intention of a composer to evoke strong emotions in the audience? Yes and no – depending on time… What role did emotions play in the music of the Middle Ages? Were happiness, anxiety and sadness treated differently at the times of Bach, Mozart and Chopin? The history of emotions in music is rich and intriguing. Let us discover a few milestones on this path.
This event is meant for all people, who want to know more about academic music and eager to get more pleasure and deeper understanding of music during concerts or home-based listening. No music education is required! Only your curiosity is needed as well as the readiness to actively explore music samples during the session and share your observations and impressions. The webinar will also give information about the upcoming course for those people who want to deepen into this subject and develop practical skills of joyful and proactive listening of classical music
