HIP: The Next Generation

Richard Egarr 70x70


After 60 years of the most recent movement in music scholarship and performance concerned with Historically Informed Performance (HIP), this talk explores where has such research brought us and where is it going? The continuing mission seems to be to seek out new sources, new information: 'to boldly go' where no HIP has gone before. In order to trace these achievements, an exploration of early sound recordings perhaps offers us some insights?

Time and Date:
6.30pm on Thursday 11th October 2012

Callaway Music Auditorium, School of Music, University of Western Australia.

Guest Lecturer:
Richard Egarr has been Music Director of the Academy of Ancient Music since 2006. Described as "the Bernstein of Early Music" by USA National Public Radio, he is a brilliant harpsichordist and equally skilled on the organ, fortepiano and modern piano. His recordings with the AAM have won MIDEM, Edison and Gramophone Awards, and he has directed the orchestra in concert halls from the USA to China.
