BACH ON SCREEN CONFERENCE
Sunday, February 18, 8:00 am - 5:30 pm
Kulas Musical Arts Building
96 Front Street, Berea
Baldwin Wallace University is pleased to announce a conference entitled “Bach on Screen,” the proceedings of which will be published in the 2019 issues of BACH: Journal of the Riemenschneider Bach Institute. These issues will be co-edited by the journal editor, Dr. Christina Fuhrmann, and Dr. Rebecca Fülöp.
The conference focuses on topics relating to Bach and music for film, television, video games, commercials, or any other screen media. From Fantasia to Hannibal Lecter to American Express, the use of Bach’s music in narrative and non-narrative media challenges longstanding assumptions of the dominance of “Romantic” musical language in film. “Bach on Screen” aims to build on both Bach studies and music and media studies by demonstrating a diversity of methodological and disciplinary perspectives.
