The interaction between art music and popular music in the USA in the 20th and 21st centuries
The aim of this international seminar is to investigate the fluctuating borders between American popular music and art music in the 20th and 21st centuries: to give as broad an account as possible of the great musical variety of a country in perpetual cultural mutation by re-examining its history and by observing its present.
In the course of the last century classical American music incorporated elements of language, genre and aesthetics from all kinds of popular music.
Conversely, composers of so-called popular music crossed the Rubicon to explore the ‘sacred’ territories of Great Music.
And yet, on both sides, these practices nurtured lively polemics between supporters of music produced well away from any form of external ‘contamination’ and the partisans of open creativity, who drew energy and renewal from musical practices and genres closer to ordinary people. Today, though they tend to become less marked, the differences between popular and art music have far from disappeared. What will things be like in the future?
