Event description

Description

During the twentieth century, composers actively pursued performers to form professional partnerships. It is widely acknowledged that the success of a composer’s work is dependent to a large extent on the talent and the virtuosic attributes of the musician/vocalist in the performance realisation. The teaming of a high-profile composer with a renowned performer most definitely ensures optimum press coverage.

The teams I will discuss include Pierre Bernac and Francis Poulenc, Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears, Edward Elgar and Yehudi Menuhin, John Cage and David Tudor, Luciano Berio and Cathy Berberian as well as Philip Glass and Joan La Barbara. Performers not only inspired these composers, but also gave advice on techniques. I argue that these established partnerships elevated the reputations of both the composer and their respective performer within the classical music scene. This presentation will include original recordings by the respective performers and written musical examples.
