NordART Study Day: ‘Music and Ethics with Dr. Nanette Nielsen’, featuring KUST candidates

10:00 – 13:00 on 21 September 2017, in the Auditorium, Norwegian Academy of Music, Oslo

The Norwegian Academy of Music and the Arne Nordheim Centre for Artistic Research invite colleagues from both inside and outside the Academy to attend this Study Day, which will explore aspects of ethics both from a theoretical standpoint, and from within KUST projects that are currently under development.

Nanette Nielsen works on music and philosophy, especially ethics and aesthetics in twentieth-century music, and on opera and music criticism in the Weimar republic. Other interests include film music, popular music, melodrama, and music in Scandinavia. Nanette Nielsen’s publications include the article ‘Ernst Krenek’s “problem of freedom” in Jonny spielt auf‘ (Twentieth-Century Music, 2013), the co-authored book Music and Ethics (with Marcel Cobussen, 2012), and a co-edited special Opera Quarterly issue on ‘Opera and Philosophy’ (with Tomas McAuley, 2014). Forthcoming publications include the Oxford Handbook of Western Music and Philosophy (under contract), co-edited with Jerrold Levinson and Tomas McAuley.

Her monograph Paul Bekker’s Musical Ethics will emerge with Routledge in October.

We are particularly glad to invite our institutional colleagues from other arts institutes in Norway, and those associated with the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme.
