Cartaz do seminário sobre música e liberalismo no mundo ibero-americano no século XIX

The seminar Music and Liberalism in the Ibero-American World during the Long Nineteenth Century will have three parts, on July 9, 17 (the original date has been changed), and 23. The sessions start at 4 pm and finish at 6 pm.

The first one will be given by Alberto Hernandez Mateos, from the University of Salamanca. “Beethoven de gira. Óscar de la Cinna’s gira Ibérica (1855-57): Estrategias de adaptación, construcción de la identidad y creación de redes culturales” explores the Iberian tour of Óscar de la Cinna, an Hungarian pianist, which played several Beethoven sonatas never before performed in Spain.

On July 17 Ignacio Jassa Haro, from Archivo SGAE, will problematise the contemporary understanding of zarzuela with the session “La zarzuela en la escena lisboeta de la segunda mitad del siglo XIX ¿vecina o invitado?”.

At last, Luísa Cymbron, a researcher at CESEM – NOVA FCSH, will lead the session “Encenando o liberalismo no Teatro de S. Carlos, em meados do século XIX: I profughi di Parga, de Angelo Frondoni, e I Vespri siciliani, de Giuseppe Verdi”. The workshop will end with an analysis of the attempts to stage liberal and/or romantic values through opera. At the time, Lisbon was a peripheral but modern city where freedom of expression was allowed.

The event will take place in room B310 of the Avenida de Berna campus, but it is also possible to watch remotely via this link.
