How have acoustics of buildings shaped the music that is composed to be performed within them?
Join acoustician Cameron Hough and Ensemble Gombert in discovering how church music changed from plainsong to polyphony in the more reverberant acoustic of Renaissance Italian churches to the contrapuntal cantatas by Bach in the drier acoustic of German churches.
Explore how the different acoustics of the Eisenstadt Palace and the Hanover Square Rooms influenced Haydn’s writing in his symphonies, and how Wagner created a completely new sound-world for opera in his new theatre at Bayreuth.
