About Dr David Larkin

David Larkin’s primary research interests are the music of Richard Strauss, Liszt and Wagner, the symphonic poem and issues such as influence and intertextuality, analytical and hermeneutic approaches to nineteenth-century music, and composer-audience relationships during this period.

Areas of recent supervision include:

  • Beethoven’s Op. 102 cello sonatas and the ‘late’ style
  • The overlap between the sacred and the secular in Liszt’s music
  • The political implications of Stanford’s editions of Irish traditional music
  • The role of ‘fate’ in Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony
  • The use of music in the Batman films
