Tim S. Pack (University of Oregon) - Fugue in Colonial Australia, 1863–1892

This presentation provides a multi-faceted overview of Australian music since 1835.  Based on the music of over 200 Australian composers, this study will examine incidence, geographical origin, and genres cultivated in each of nine generations of Australian composers from 1835 to the present.  The presentation will also offer a stylistic summary and aural overview of the repertory.

Tim S. Pack has a broad spectrum of research interests in each historical period since the Renaissance.  His work, which has been published in seven countries, spans topics such as fifteenth-century Franco-Flemish polyphony, the choral-symphonic works of Boccherini, chamber music of Christoph Sonnleithner, the string quartets of Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga, orchestral works of Théodore Dubois and Charles Tournemire, motets of Hugo Distler and Olivier Messiaen, and music of living composers.  He has given lectures on each of these interests at conferences across Australia, Belgium, Costa Rica, England, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United States, and Wales.
