Martina Sichardt, “Toward a Narratological Analysis of Beethoven”
October 2, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Martina Sichardt, Professor of Musicology at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater “Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy” in Leipzig, is a scholar of the works of Beethoven, Reger, and Schoenberg. She started her career as a professional violinist in the Hessisches Staatstheater and spent more than two decades as an editor of the critical edition of Schoenberg’s complete works. She is the author of a study of the origins of Schoenberg’s 12-tone method (Die Entstehung der Zwölftonmethode Arnold Schönbergs, Mainz 1990), and her more recent book, on which this talk is based, explores how the theories of narratology can fill important methodological gaps in the analysis of nineteenth-century instrumental music (Entwurf einer narratologischen Beethoven-Analytik, Bonn 2012). She has received fellowships from the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and has held teaching positions in Berlin, Hamburg, and Cologne.
