Hogwood Speaks at Cornell

Understanding the musicality of the past can enrich the musical life of the present, said conductor, musicologist and keyboard player Christopher Hogwood Oct. 25, 2013 during his first visit to campus as an A.D. White Professor-at-Large.

Now, with more than a century’s worth of recorded evidence of how music was heard in the past, said Hogwood, people are able to pursue a historical interest in music, and the music of the 19th and 20th centuries can be observed and judged by everyone — not just expert musicians or historians.
