Haydn – Patronage and Enlightenment

This February, join the Stanford Arts Institute for our two-day Haydn — Patronage and Enlightenment Conference. The conference, to be held in the Bing Concert Hall Studio, will feature presentations by experts from a range of humanistic disciplines. In addition to these lectures, the program will include a lecture-demonstration and two recitals. Each day will culminate in a ticketed evening performance in Bing Concert Hall. Speakers include Colin Bailey (de Young Museum, San Francisco), Tom Beghin (McGill University [Montreal] and Orpheus Institute [Ghent]), Caryl Clark (U. of Toronto), Wolfgang Fuhrmann (U. of Vienna), Stephen Hinton (Stanford), Nicholas Mathew (U.C. Berkeley), James Johnson (Boston U.), William Weber (California State U., Long Beach), James Webster (Cornell), and the members of the St. Lawrence String Quartet.
The music of Joseph Haydn is being featured throughout 2014-2015 as part of a campus-wide project on Patronage and Enlightenment. Stanford Live, Music at Stanford, and the Stanford Arts Institute are collaborating with other Stanford partners to explore the culture of the late eighteenth century, with a particular focus on the shifting landscape of support for the arts during the Enlightenment.
