Did we always sit still and listen?
Margaret Faultless, co-leader of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, is one of the most successful baroque violinists of her generation and an expert and educator in the field of historically informed performance practice.
As part of the Tetbury Music Festival 2018, she examines the evolution of performance from the audience’s point of view – from the salon to the concert hall, from the pleasure gardens to the summer festival.
When did we start sitting quietly and not clap between movements, and why do Americans feel they have to give everyone a standing ovation? Professor Faultless will answer these questions and more.
This lecture forms part of the Tetbury Music Festival 2018 – running from 29th September through to 7th October 2018. For more information and to book tickets please go to https://www.tetburymusicfestival.org/
