On the Musically Sentimental: from Chopin to Barry Manilow

Event Details

9th February, 2015
Windsor Building Auditorium, Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham, Surrey, TW20 0EX

Sentimentalism has been a neglected, even derided notion in romantic music but this talk argues that it is a crucial aspect of some of the finest music of the 19th century. This will be exemplified, at the piano, by extracts from Chopin. The talk will also demonstrate an aspect of the legacy of romantic sentimentalism through considering Barry Manilow’s 1970s power ballad, Could it be Magic.

The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Windsor Building Foyer.
