Music Inspired by Fear of Illness in the Pre-Anaesthetic Era

Concert | 23 April, 2019, 6:30 PM

​This experience will be divided into two parts: First, there will be a short overview by Dr. Nick Newton of the fear of illness and impending surgery on individuals in the 17th & 18th Century, followed by an introductory talk from Dr. Tim Smith, focusing on the aetiology and management of bladder stones in the pre-anaesthetic era. These brief introductions will set the scene for a concert by the Royal Baroque Ensemble, under the direction of Katarzyna Kowalik, of music composed by Marin, Lully, Froberger, Couperin and Zelenka reflecting the patient's anxieties concerning illness, surgery without anaesthesia and the close encounters with imminent or untimely death.
