Faculty Profile: Patrick Wood Uribe
Patrick Wood Uribe holds a PhD in musicology from Princeton University, as well as degrees in violin performance from the Royal Academy of Music in London, and in Modern Languages from Oxford University. As a violin soloist and chamber musician, he has performed widely throughout the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as in France, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Italy and Spain.
His primary research explores music and the history of ideas at the turn of the nineteenth century, in particular the relationship between theoretical approaches to music and the aesthetics and turbulent historical context of early Romanticism. Dr. Wood Uribe has also presented and published work on twentieth-century Latin American music, most recently at the International Musicological Society Conference in Rome, as well as on violin music from the seventeenth century. Recent publications include editions of violin music by Heinrich Biber (2010) and Thomas Baltzar (2012), and articles and reviews for The Journal of Music Theory (2011), The Dutch Journal of Music Theory (2010), The Journal of Seventeenth-Century Music (forthcoming), Early Music America (2008, 2009), and The Journal of Film Music (2010). He continues to have an active performing career as a violinist: his debut CD of Baltzar’s unaccompanied violin works was released in 2008 to critical acclaim, and a new CD of music for soprano, violin and piano by living composers was released in January 2012.
