Home > Lake District Events > Talk: Vienna – A Musical Legacy

Talk presented by composer Martin Bussey

The names trip off the tongue: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven for starters; Schubert, Brahms and Mahler later on. What was it about Vienna that made it the hub of musical development in the 18th and 19th centuries? Then had equal impact on 20th-century music in Berg, Schoenberg and Webern. Not to mention waltzes! Can we identify the legacy of the ‘Viennese school’ as being more than just lots of musical ‘forms’, creative as those were? Is it a coincidence that song sits alongside the orchestral and chamber music of Vienna as part of the legacy? And what is the role of women in this legacy?

Martin Bussey explores these themes and attempts to interweave them in outlining the rich musical legacy of Vienna.

This event will also be available in BSL in collaboration with Cumbria Deaf Association
