Dr. Kutnowski is a contemporary composer with firm roots in the tonal idiom. In his works, references to the musical past are often embedded within folk materials of his native country, Argentina. His pieces, ranging from solo instrument to orchestra, have been performed in Europe, Asia and the Americas. In February 2003, his “Lullaby for an Ancient Grandfather” was performed by Ana Maria Trenchi Bottazzi at Carnegie Hall’s Isaac Stern.
During this presentation Dr. Kutnowski asks: Is music a language? Do musical works have “meaning?” The lecture will explore answers to these and other questions. Works from the tonal repertoire and musical curtains of well-known TV shows will provide a springboard for this lively and informative discourse.
Presenter: Dr. Martin Kutnowski
