Queensboro lecture examines problem of ‘meaning’ in music

Is music a language? Do musical works have “meaning?” Join Dr. Martin Kutnowski at Queensborough Community College’s seventh presidential lecture, slated for Wednesday, March 24. The lecture, “From Regis Philbin to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: The Problem of Meaning in Music” will explore answers to these and other questions. Works from the tonal repertoire and musical curtains of well-known TV shows will provide a springboard for this lively and informative presentation by Kutnowski, Assistant Professor of Music.

Kutnowski is a contemporary composer with firm roots in the tonal idiom. In his works, references to the musical past, are often embedded within folk materials of his native country, Argentina. His pieces, ranging from solo instrument to orchestra, have been performed in Europe, Asia and the Americas. In February 2003, his “Lullaby for an Ancient Grandfather” was performed by Ana Maria Trenchi Bottazzi at Carnegie Hall’s Isaac Stern Auditorium.

This event, free and open to the public, will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the Humanities Theater. For more information and reservations, call 718-281-5144.
