Rameau the Theorist
1315 Chemistry Building
Chemist Rod Schreiner will demonstrate the principles of string vibration and sound propagation that influenced Rameau, and music theorist Lee Blasius will explain how Rameau used these principles to construct a comprehensive view of music.
The year 2014 marks the 250th anniversary of Jean-Philippe Rameau's death, and celebrations of the composer and music theorist's life are taking place in France and around the world. During the 2014-2015 academic year, the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Music will join the celebration with a series of public events, consisting of performances and panel discussions.
