Concord Conservatory hosts lecture on music of the Enlightenment

January 5, 2023

The Concord Conservatory of Music in West Concord will have a lecture on Music of the Enlightenment on Thursday, Jan. 12, at 7 p.m. presented by CCM faculty member and cellist Fabrizio Mazzetta.

Discover major composers of the Enlightenment period as well as what breakthroughs and events impacted its music. You will have the opportunity to explore multiple examples of music compositions from the Enlightenment and how to interpret these beautiful pieces. Learn how the music of the Enlightenment evolved and aged through time and how it still affects today’s classical music world and beyond.

Each moment in music history was inspired by real-world events and the ideas of the time. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn, and Ludwig van Beethoven were born in the age of The Enlightenment. It was a 17th and 18th century period where ideas ranged from the pursuit of happiness to the pursuit of knowledge and reason.
