Beethoven and Mozart: Why Music From the Past Still Matters

Talk by Scott Timberg, author

With the huge amount of culture – popular and otherwise – available to people in 2019, why do some of us return to art and music from hundreds of years ago? Does it offer something – something better, something different? — we can’t get otherwise? This address will use three pieces of Mozart’s and Beethoven to look at the origins and importance of art music from the past. Scott Timberg will extend some arguments from his book Culture Crash to consider why these composers and others continue to find advocates and audiences for their work, decades after classical music in the English-speaking world was supposed to have died a natural death. What does it tell us about the future of culture-making?
