Dr. Theodore Albrecht - 2011 Distinguished Scholar Award Recipient - Video
Dr. Theodore Albrecht, a Kent State faculty member since 1992, teaches musicology and music history and is best known as a Beethoven specialist. Albrecht is widely known for his work in Classical and Romantic music, the early 20th century and American music.
â€œLetters to Beethoven,â€ a three-volume collection of more than 500 documents, dozens never before available in any language, was written by Albrecht and published by the University of Nebraska Press in 1996. For this work, he was given the 1997 Deems Taylor ASCAP award and Barry Cooper of BBC Music Magazine hailed it as â€œthe largest and most important collection of Beethoven source materials to be published in English for many years.â€
Recently, Albrecht has been offered a contract by the widely respected Indiana University Press for a book titled â€œBeethoven and the Orchestral Musicians of Viennaâ€ to be published in late 2013.
