Vaughan Williams 150: Musical Connections
Talk by Dr Ceri Owen | University of Birmingham
RVW expert Dr Ceri Owen discusses the works appearing in the Festival and RVW’s links to our other featured composers, interwoven with extracts from his letters to give a personal insight to the process of the great composer.
Anthony Philip Heinrich (1781-1861) was born in Bohemia but made his name in the United States, where he was dubbed ‘The Beethoven of America’. Heinrich was really the first “full time” American composer and a musician of great influence, chairing the founding meeting of the New York Philharmonic Society in 1842 and bringing Beethoven’s music to the fore across the pond.
