EVENT: Shaping the Invisible: images reflected in music
|Shaping the Invisible: images reflected in music : Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of Italian Studies at UWA
A public talk by Mr Robert Hollingworth, Reader in Music, University of York and Director, I Fagiolini.
Robert Hollingworth will present a new CD of choral music from his much acclaimed vocal ensemble ‘I Fagiolini’. With Leonardo Da Vinci expert Professor Martin Kemp, Robert has selected music from the 15th to the 20th centuries, inspired by and reflecting images and ideas of Da Vinci. The title track is a new commission bridging a gap between the early 21st century and Leonardo, on the 500th anniversary of his death. In this lecture Robert will discuss the project, show the pictures and play some of the music.
2019 marks the 90th anniversary of the teaching of Italian language and culture at The University of Western Australia.
In 1929, Francesco Vanzetti, an idiosyncratic and popular Venetian, offered the first courses in Italian. This was the first appointment of a lecturer in Italian in any Australian university.
This lecture series, supported by the Institute of Advanced Studies and by Italian Studies in the UWA School of Humanities, celebrates aspects of Italian language and culture, past and present.
