Appel de conférences pour le « Contemporary Hoffmann Symposium », Berlin et en ligne, 11-12 novembre 2022.
« The poetic work of E.T.A. Hoffmann has inspired generations of writers, artists and composers. The concepts and characters he devised were adopted not only throughout the 19th century, but also held great fascination for composers of the 20th and 21st century. This is evidenced by numerous
compositions from Busoni’s ‘Die Brautwahl’ to Weir’s stage work « Heaven Ablaze in His Breast » to the steampunk opera ‘Klein Zaches genannt Zinnober’ by the band Coppelius. On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Hoffmann’s death, the symposium aims to illuminate his reception in compositions of the 20th and 21st centuries. In addition, it will trace the echo up to the present day of his highly ambivalent fascination with musical automata, which is reflected in his literary works. »
