Eduard Hanslick: Aesthetic, Critical, and Cultural Contexts

HanslickIn June 2009, I was the Chair of the Organizing Committee for the first international, bilingual conference on Eduard Hanslick, a seminal figure in nineteenth-century Viennese musical life. Please see here for the Hanslick Conference Booklet (2009). This conference subsequently led to the publication of Rethinking Hanslick: Music, Formalism, and Expression (Rochester NY: University of Rochester Press, 2013).
