    Professor Duffin will speak about his book How Equal Temperament Ruined Harmony (and why you should care). Judged by the Guardian as “enjoyably pugnacious … should make any contemporary musician think differently about tuning,” and by the Wall Street Journal as “delightfully informative and provocative,” it was characterized by another reviewer as “the most subversive book on a musical subject I’ve ever read.” Come hear what the fuss is about as Duffin introduces his “elegantly argued” book, discussing tuning — especially non-keyboard tuning — from the 18th to the 20th centuries. Sponsored by the Bakalar Music Library.
