Presented by the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institutes of Montreal, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Toronto & Washington D.C.

On April 6th, 1520, Raffaello Sanzio, one of the geniuses of the Renaissance, died in Rome. On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of his death, while we wait for the houses of culture to reopen and to be able to see works of art live again, the network of Italian Cultural Institutes (IIC) in the US and Canada will celebrate the Master through online multimedia initiatives.

Although music does not play such a prominent role in Raphael's output as in, for instance, Titian or Caravaggio, still he was born and worked in very musical places: Urbino and Rome. This talk looks at the musics that he might have heard and that might have sounded around him, both in the Marches and in the Eternal City.

Robert L. Kendrick works largely in early modern music and culture, with additional interests in Latin American music, historical anthropology, traditional Mediterranean polyphony, music and commemoration, and the visual arts. His most recent book is Singing Jeremiah: Music and Meaning in Holy Week (Indiana UP, 2014), and recent graduate seminars include: ‘European Sacred Music Abroad, 1550-1730’; ‘Senecan Drama, Stoicism, and Baroque Opera’ (co-taught)'; and 'Music and Images in Early Modern Europe'. He has taught on the Rome and Vienna programs of the Civilization Core, as well as undergraduate ethnomusicology. In 2006 he won a Graduate Teaching Award. At Chicago he is term faculty for the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures (Italian, French, Spanish, Catalan), and affiliated with the Center for Gender Studies, and the Center for Latin American Studies. A member of Milan’s Accademia Ambrosiana, Kendrick received his Ph.D. (musicology) and M.A. (ethnomusicology) from New York University, after a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, and he is a former Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows. A former autoworker and union activist, he is keenly interested in the issues around grad student, adjunct, and contingent-faculty labor in academia

This event is organized by the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institutes of Montreal, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Toronto & Washington D.C.
