Ana Beatriz Mujica, Musicology

Ana Beatriz Mujica, PhD candidate in musicology at the Graduate Center, will be presenting a paper at the International Conference “Topics in Hispanic music: 18th-21st centuries” taking place at the University of Valladolid (Spain) from Oct. 20 to Oct. 22. The conference participants will discuss the application of Topic Theory to Spanish and Latin American music, proposing various approaches and methodologies and discussing their implications. In her paper, titled “Bailando un merengue en sueños: más allá de los significados y tópicos nacionales en la música para piano deTeresa Carreño,” Ana Beatriz examines the colonial history and the impact of 19th century international mobility in the construction of Venezuelan national topics through Teresa Carreño’s piano music. Through the analysis of Carreño’s “Un bal en reve: Fantaisie-Caprice,” she discusses how the application of Topic Theory exposes the ways in which Latin American music transcends the artificial dichotomy of the European and the national to which it has been traditionally reduced.
