Dr Kris Worsley has published articles and reviews on European music and performance practice from the late 17th to early 19th century and has completed research on Beethoven’s Heiligenstadt sketches. He is active as a pianist on modern and historical instruments, and has performed many works by little-known composers of the 18th and 19th century and uncompleted works from Beethoven’s sketchbooks.
He has taught undergraduate courses in music history of the classical and romantic periods, and has given elective courses on repertoire and performance practice of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. He has supervised Masters dissertations on a wide variety of historical subjects. His particular interest is to support those students whose work is in the following fields: performance practice 1750-1830; the music of Beethoven and his contemporaries; musical aesthetics in the Enlightenment and early romantic period.
