Musings on Music’s Muse: Searching for Truth at the Intersection of Formal and Aesthetic Beauty.
September 13, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
In this talk Dr. David Smith presents the case for a reinterpretation of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s full throated entrance into the world of popular commercial theatre with his last Opera die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute, 1791). In the context of Dr. Smith’s ongoing composition of an operatic sequel to die Zauberflöte, he discusses the nature of both formal (derived) and aesthetic (revealed) beauty in music.
