Conference The Symphonic Sound of Romanticism. Theory and Practice of Conducting in the 20th Century

Palazzo Malcanton Marcorà, Venice
plus OCT, 25 2019

Developed in collaboration with the Fondazione Peter Maag (Verona) and the University of Rome-La Sapienza, this project, coordinated by Gianmario Borio, Nicola Guerini and Antonio  Rostagno consists of a series of lectures on eighteen 20th-century conductors aimed at exploring their different interpretative, stylistic and technical approaches. The whole series will focus on the interpretation and performance of the 19th-century symphonic repertoire, from Schubert to Mahler. The main objective is to explore how thinking on the romantic symphony developed throughout the 20th century by reconsidering the formation and evolution of its musical image. In the Venice lecture, to be held in the Sala Giovanni Morelli in the Palazzo Malcanton Marcorà, Gianfranco Vinay (University of Paris 8) will discuss Leonard Bernstein and his interpretations of Mahler’s Symphonies.
