Folk Elements in 20th & 21st Century Classical Music
Judah Adashi, composer and composition faculty at Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University

How has folk music influenced and informed the work of Western classical composers? Dr Adashi will outline prominent examples of this phenomenon among 20th century European composers - from Béla Bartók to Benjamin Britten and Luciano Berio - before turning to 21st century artists, including American composers Jessie Montgomery and Caroline Shaw.
