Jonathan will be speaking about Hubert Parry’s legacy at the Royal College of Music on 28th October.
Full programme here.
This study day, co-organised by the Royal College of Music and the University of Southampton, will examine Parry’s work at the RCM and his legacy throughout the 20th century. Parry was the RCM’s first Professor of Music History and his approach to the subject – driven by active student participation and shaped by contemporary doctrines of evolution – was visionary in its time. The day will conclude with a keynote address on the past and present of music history pedagogy in higher education by Alexander Rehding, Fanny Peabody Professor of Music at Harvard University.
