The School of Music has appointed a new Professor of Classical Music.
Michael Spitzer is a musicologist and music theorist and taught for many years at Durham University. He was re-elected President of the Society for Music Analysis in 2009 and founded the annual SMA Music Analysis Summer School.
His research covers a wide range of theoretical and critical areas, and he is world-renowned for his work on music semiotics, metaphor theory and Beethoven.
Michael said: “I’m delighted to be joining such a vibrant, friendly, and forward-looking department. Liverpool is buzzing with musical life, and I’m looking forward to exploring it”
New Head of the School, Dr Giles Hooper, said: “We are delighted to welcome to the School of Music someone of Michael’s esteem, talent and international standing. He will play a major role in our continuing development as one of the most progressive and innovative Music departments in the country.”
