Alberto Ginastera and the Cold War: A 'Musical MacNamara' in the United States  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Carol Hess, Professor of Musicology, College of Music

What do we in the United States know about Latin American music and how do we know it? This lecture is part of a broader study that seeks to illuminate this question by considering the experiences of the so-called Big Three of twentieth-century Latin American art music: Carlos Chávez (Mexico), Alberto Ginastera (Argentina) and Heitor Villa-Lobos (Brazil). Focusing on the second of these important figures, this lecture traces Ginastera's career in the United States, especially as it was affected by anti-nationalist sentiments during the Cold War.

Refreshments will be served.
