September 2018

  • September 6, 7:30 p.m.: France & Her Revolutions, Lecture 1—Ideas as Crucibles

    Weeks Center for Recording and Performance, Clarke Recital Hall

    Frank Cooper, lecturer

    When radical thinkers in 18th century Paris rallied the masses to revolt, they didn’t just topple the Bastille. Their Republican ideals spurred writers, composers, and painters to envision a new way of life beyond ingrained tradition. The arts were affected more profoundly with Napoleon’s move into politics and onto a throne.

    Weeks Center for Recording and Performance, Clarke Recital Hall

    Frank Cooper, lecturer

    The 1830’s and 40’s upended the standards for journalists, poets, playwrights, musicians, and artists, forcing innovators to join together while making room for individual genius.

    Weeks Center for Recording and Performance, Clarke Recital Hall

    Frank Cooper, lecturer

    As Romanticism flooded Europe, cultural life broke free from the inhibitions of Classicism and surged with new creativity. Verdi and Wagner soared, as did Liszt, Brahms, Dvorak, the Mighty Handful, artists Corot and Daumier, and writers Dumas, Poe, Baudelaire, and Emerson.

    The advent of the 20th century saw Paris once again become a wellspring of revolutionary artistic ideas. Mallarmé, Verlaine, and Rimbaud shattered poetry, while Braque and Picasso’s Cubism splintered the pictorial plan.
