Come and Discover:
We have many images of the "tools" that the Ancient Romans used to play music. But, when we admire a mosaic, a marble relief, or a painting from Pompeii, or we try to understand in front of a statue of Apollo what tune his fingers are producing on the lyre, unfortunately we cannot hear any sound.
No musical score has survived, so the question is: is there any chance for us to listen to some ancient Roman music? And first of all, what did "music" mean in the ancient world?
In this first lecture, we will focus on the ancient myths related to music, on the civilizations and cultures that had a long-lasting influence on the Romans in this field and on the main musical instruments that they played.
In a future second lecture, we will understand in which occasions music could be listened to.
The lecture has been recorded for you!
