Translation as Music, Music as Translation

When: Tuesday 6th November 2018, from 4.15 pm

Where: Clare College, Old Court, Latimer Room, and Clare College Chapel

Details:

This event will explore the relationship between solo voice and accompaniment, with the accompanist acting as translator, facilitating and enabling the reception of the soloist’s performance. There will be a talk followed by a concert.

Clare College, Old Court, Latimer Room, 4.15 for 4.30 to 5.30 pm

Pre-performance talk by Professor Jane Tylus (Yale University): Translation as Accompaniment

How might we think about music – supposedly a universal language – in terms of translation? This talk will consider the translator as a kind of accompanist – engaged in playful dialogue with the lead author – and the accompanist as a kind of translator, who facilitates and enables the reception of the soloist’s performance. The discussion will focus on the relationship between language and music, between notions of single authorship and collaboration, between reading and performance. These considerations will draw on recent work in translation studies and music history, citing examples from Renaissance poetry as well as Beethoven’s cello sonatas and other musical form

Clare College Chapel, 6-7pm

Concert: Music as Translation

Cultural Translation in Theory and Practice

This contribution, from the perspective of a cultural historian, offers reflections on the history of the ideas of translation and translatability – between languages, between media, and especially between cultures, together with the problems raised by these practices. It discusses related concepts, from 'accommodation' to 're-employment', and the work not only of translators in the literal sense but also that of missionaries, anthropologists and historians.
