Leonard Bernstein's Poetics



This international symposium will focus on Bernstein's musical poetics and his music-aesthetic reflections, which are reflected not only in his writings (explicit poetics), but also in his artistic productions as a composer and performer (composer, conductor, pianist), in his music-mediating formats (Omnibus, Young People's Concerts) and last but not least in his music films (implicit poetics). His understanding of eclecticism, the relationship between music/society/politics, the question of genre hybridity and the theatricality of his music, as well as his reception and interpretation of Beethoven will be among the subjects of the research.
