More about Christopher Parton

I am a PhD candidate in Musicology. I hold a BA in music from the University of Bristol and an MSt in musicology from the University of Oxford. My work centers around the transmediation of text into song in early nineteenth-century German song and how this material process intersects with early-Romantic poetics. 

For the 2020-2021 academic year I will be a Visiting Scholar at the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn supported by a DAAD fellowship.
