Meet the Bate Collection

The world premiere of a new video highlighting Oxford’s Bate Collection of musical instruments will be followed by a lively discussion of the collection’s historical importance, its curiosities, and the University’s plans to move the collection to a new home in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities. The event will feature performances on Bate Collection instruments including an exquisite violin held in the collection and what is believed to have been Handel’s harpsichord. Speakers include Michael Burden, Professor of Opera Studies and Dean, Chattels and Pictures Fellow, New College as well as Andrew Lamb, Bate Collection Manager. The session will be moderated by Professor Suzanne Aspden (St Hilda's, 1994) Associate Professor; Fellow and Tutor, Jesus College; Lecturer at Lincoln College.
