On the weekend of September 15–16, I will be traveling to Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, to give a presentation at the Third Annual Conference on the Italian Madrigal. My talk is entitled, “Hearing the Interrogative in the Polyphonic Madrigals of Sigismondo d’India: A Quantitative Analysis.” The talk is scheduled for a Saturday morning session about poetic form to be chaired by Massimo Ossi.
Amidst the presentations and discussions, the conference will also include a live concert performance by the marvelous Blue Heron vocal ensemble. All events are free and open to the public. I hope to see you there!
