Musicologist will lecture on campus

Michael Baumgartner, a professor of musicology at Cleveland State University, will give a free lecture at 4 p.m. Feb. 26 in Bliss Recital Hall, on the Youngstown State University campus. For information, call the Dana School of Music at 330-941-2307.

Baumgartner will focus on Jean-Luc Godard’s early films from 1960 to around 1966, which reveal an ironic reflection of Hollywood cinema from the 1940s and 1950s.

His research comprises music in relation to the other arts (cinema, theater and visual arts), music of the 20th and 21st centuries, and the narrative capacity of music.
