Quicksilver - Wunderkammer: A Cabinet of Wonder from the 17th Century
Saturday, July 7, 2018
Mills Concert Hall, Mosse Humanities Building
Wunderkammer, or “wonder rooms,” were cabinets containing wide-ranging collections of objects whose categorical boundaries were not defined. With new found compositional freedom, 17th century composers similarly created many musical wonders, stretching the boundaries of musical conversation, welcoming the influences of migrants, and exploring new means to communicate the depths of their experiences.
