Richard Taruskin, “America’s public musicologist,” applies his broad cultural analysis, wit, and humor to 21st-century classical music. As in his acclaimed book The Dangers of Music, he provokes debate, asking, what is the artist’s relationship, and obligation, to society? He is the author of the six-volume Oxford History of Western Music and a regular contributor to the New York Times. Taruskin’s talk will be followed by a discussion with GC professor Scott Burnham, with a musical interlude.Buy tickets/get more info now
