Jeremy Eichler: Pebbles on the Stump of the Oak: Richard Strauss, Metamorphosen and a Search for the Memory of Music
April 12 @ 7:00 pmFree
In this presentation, Jeremy Eichler, an award-winning classical music critic and cultural historian, explores music’s memory of the wartime past through the life and art of Richard Strauss. He will present selections from his book in progress — Time’s Echo — which blends cultural history, biography, travel log and critical reflection in order to both open up the resonance of Strauss’s musical memorial, Metamorphosen (among other works), and to rethink our relationship to the legacies of war, the witnessing of art, and the meaning of music in our lives today.
Jeremy Eichler is an award-winning critic and cultural historian who, since 2006, has served as chief classical music critic of The Boston Globe. Eichler holds a doctorate in European History from Columbia University, and his writing and scholarship have been recognized with an ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for music criticism, a Public Scholar grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Salo and Jeanette Baron Dissertation Prize, and fellowships from Harvard University as well the MacDowell Colony.
