Talk II: Folk influences in classical music

October 19, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A talk by Mike Worboys

Folk music has had an influence on ‘classical’ composers, from Hildegard von Bingen to composers of the present day. This talk will provide an historical whistle-stop tour, before focusing in greater depth on specific composers and works, including Schubert, Bartok and Dvorak, whose String Quartet, Op. 96 (American) will be performed at a later concert in the series.

Mike holds a PhD in Music from the University of Durham.
