Headshot of Edgardo Salinas

Edgardo Salinas earned the PhD in Historical Musicology at Columbia University in 2010. His dissertation, entitled "Modernity's Hearing Loss: Beethoven, Romantic Critique, and the Music of the Literary," traces historical and structural connections between the literary theory of Jena romanticism, the consolidation of print culture in Europe around 1800, and the paradigm of musical form that emerges in Beethoven's early piano sonatas. He was also a Postdoctoral Fellow/Lecturer at the Columbia University Society of Fellows in the Humanities (2010-13). A native of Argentina, Edgardo received a "Licenciatura" in Piano Performance from the School of Music at Universidad Nacional de Rosario. He first came to the United States in 2000 on a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue Master's degrees in Piano Performance and Music History at Bowling Green State University.
