Symposium

Metropole London – Konflikte und Identitäten eines musikalischen Zentrums

In the eighteenth century, London was a unique urban community that encapsulated the spirit of the Age of Enlightenment. Discussion, debate and argument about all of the signifi cant topics of the day formed the backdrop of this particular city. Similarly, the musical life of London, to which Handel ultimately dedicated his life, did not have its own ‘set’ identity but was the result of a host of confl icts, in part deliberately ‘stage-managed’ and explored. In the course of the symposium, four particularly important constellations will be dealt with systematically. They concern the political, the social, the aesthetic and the cultural identity of London, musical metropolis.

The talks given at the symposium, which will be held in German, will appear in the ‘Göttinger Händel-Beiträge’ series of publications.

The venue is barrier-free. For further information on Festival venue accessibility, please see the overview.
