CWRU Lecture-Recital | Alice Culin-Ellison, violin (DMA)
“Musical Possibilities: The Beginning of Affective Violin Fingerings”
Harkness Chapel (11200 Bellflower Road)
Modern, edited editions of music contain a plethora of fingerings added by well-meaning, famous violinists. But fingerings weren’t always there! This lecture and recital focus on the appearance of fingerings in treatises in the early- to mid- 18th century. Join Alice as she explores how and why printed fingerings came about, who put them there, and what musical consequences ensue depending on their choice.
Alice will be joined by Eva Lymenstull, Cello, and Peter Bennett, harpsichord/advisor
Alice Culin-Ellison, a 4th-year doctoral candidate at Case Western Reserve University in the Historical Performance Program, studying with Julie Andrijeski, will present her lecture-recital in partial fulfillment of the DMA program.
Free and open to the public. Parking available at the meters along Bellflower Road and East Blvd. or in the Ford Ave. and Severance parking garages.
