A Musicologist and Critic of Prodigious Erudition Who Has Transformed Contemporary Perspectives on Music through Historical Research and Essays That Defy Conventional Critical Paradigms

Dr. Taruskin has pioneered a new dimension in Western music culture through musicology research that transcends conventional historiographical methodologies, issuing sharp critical analysis backed byexhaustive knowledge of many diverse fields. His unrivaled perspective has significantly influenced both performance and study, elevating the importance and creative value of critical discourse to the music world.

Taruskin is widely acknowledged as the leading scholar in the field of Russian music today. His master’s thesis, "Vladimir Vasilievich Stasov: Functionary in Art" (1968) — which won the Bennet Prize from the Columbia University Department of English and Comparative Literature for the best essay in the humanities other than a Ph.D. dissertation — laid the groundwork for his research in Russian music, which has remained the focus of most of his scholarship.

Join us for an unforgettable discussion with the world's leading scholar of Russian music.
