Lecture | What Makes It Italian? Discovering National Character in Music


How can we define the elusive quality of "Italian-ness" in music? This discussion group gives voice and vocabulary to our intuitions about Italian music, both instrumental and vocal. You'll listen to music from the sublime Palestrina, pinnacle of the Italian Renaissance; through Monteverdi, Lulli, Cherubini, Puccini, Respighi and more; to John Corigliano and our modern world, naming Italian characteristics and asking whether they stand the test of time. What Makes It Italian is a music listening and discussion group that is open to everyone. Attendance at all meetings, which take place on Tuesdays from April 10 to May 15, is encouraged, as the discussions are cumulative. Led by Gina Crusco, who also guides listening at the Riverdale Y, formerly music instructor at The New School and director of Underworld Productions Opera. Tonight: John Corigliano: One Sweet Morning

This is a special evening devoted to Subcarpathia, a region of historical Hungary with a rich and exceptional culture. Dezső Zsigmond's The bastard of the devil (A Sátán fattya) will be screened with a Q&A immediately following the film, which presents the dreadful fate of Hungarians and the tragic events of 1944 in Subcarpathia. The night will also see the unveiling of two exhibitions: renowned photographer János Perl's photos, Treasures of Subcarpathia, and Pro Urbe-rewarded fashion designer Tünde Hrivnák's homespun collection from Bereg will be on display.
