Professor of Music

 

Pfau

 

 

Dr. Pfau heads the music history and literature program at USD, and teaches special interdisciplinary courses with faculty from the literature, theology, philosophy, and political science departments.  She received her doctorate in historical musicology from Stony Brook University in New York, with a dissertation on Hildegard von Bingen.  Prior to coming to the US, she obtained graduate degrees and a solo diploma in historical performance practices and in early wind instruments from the Musikhochschule Hamburg, and holds a licentiate in music therapy from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

 
As a scholar, Dr. Pfau has published extensively on Hildegard von Bingen. Intensely interested in the connections of scholarship and performance, she has produced several international early music festivals and symposia at USD. Recently, her focus has shifted toward unpublished music of the 18th century for hautbois . She records this repertoire with her ensemble 'toutes suites: music from page to stage' (www.toutes-suites.com)
