Vanessa Williams

Fifth Year Graduate Student in Musicology
Room 103, Music Building


My area of interest concerns musical life in Britain during the First World War. I am particularly interested in musical performance and reception across a wide range of genres, from classical music performances in concert halls to musical theatre, music halls, gramophone recordings and performances by amateur ensembles. I also have a keen interest in the field of gender studies, and focussed my Masters dissertation on Clara Schumann and her compositional aesthetic.
