POSTPONED! Anniversary Thoughts: Wagner’s ‘Beethoven’ Essay of 1870

July 25, 2020 - 8:00 am - 9:30 am

WEBINAR POSTPONED – “Anniversary Thoughts: Wagner’s ‘Beethoven’ Essay of 1870.” 
The Wagner Society of Northern California will welcomes Professor Katherine Syer to our webinar series at a later date. In her presentation Professor Syer will discuss Wagner’s evolving response to Beethoven up until that stage, and the ways the essay is not ultimately so much about Ludwig van Beethoven, but engages substantially with Schopenhauer in ways that tie back into key veins of Wagner’s artistic evolution (thereby allowing opportunities for music examples.)
Professor Katherine Syer is an Adjunct Professor of Music and Musicology at the University of California Los Angeles, Herb Alpert School of Music. Before joining the faculty at UCLA, Katherine Syer taught opera and theatre history/production, research methods, dramaturgy, and special topics courses at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she most recently also served as the director of Graduate Studies and Area Head for Theatre Studies. Dr. Syer’s work on Wagner’s creative development and legacy has been published in The Wagner JournalMusical Quarterly, Wagner and His World, and A Companion to Wagner’s ‘Parsifal.’ Her monograph Wagner’s Visions: Poetry, Politics, and the Psyche in the Operas through ‘Die Walküre’ appeared in 2014 (Boydell and Brewer). She has offered production-related presentations for the Wagner Societies in Northern California, New York, and Chicago, as well as at international scholarly conferences.
Webinar: This will be a Zoom webinar presentation. Registration is required to attend the webinar and registration information will be provided to members. This webinar is free of charge. Non-members, please contact the Wagner Society at Wagnersocnc@gmail.com
