In this salon, we explore how and where we listen to music. More so than perhaps other art forms, music can switch contexts. While we usually read books in relative silence and solitude (physically or mentally), and we watch films in dark rooms on large and small screens, the spaces—and even the mediums—of experiencing classical music vary quite remarkably.
We will of course discuss the formal places where classical music is performed and heard: in concert and recital halls, and in historical and sacred spaces.
But we’ll also explore all the other places we might encounter music—in the home, in the car, in cafes and restaurants, in the practice rooms, and beyond.
How do these disparate contexts and locations affect what and how we hear classical music? How does space interact with the listening experience? When are these contexts additive, and when can they be detracting?
We’ll also be able to share our own personal experiences with classical music in unique and and special settings, and revel in the particularities of listening to music in all the places and times that they can exist in.
