The Emergence of the Classical Tradition in Musical Style and Performance
Led by Christopher H. Gibbs

This summer’s second Encounter explores the concurrent advancement of performance practice, compositional innovation, and Viennese musical culture during the Classical and early Romantic eras. Scholar Christopher H. Gibbs returns to Music@Menlo to lead audiences in an overview of the emergence of the Classical style at the hands of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven—also revealing the astounding contributions of violinist Ignaz Schuppanzigh, a friend and colleague of Beethoven’s, to the musical life of Vienna.
