Diego Cubero’s research interests include Schenkerian analysis, Romantic aesthetics and the music of Brahms. His dissertation expands upon the common notion that Brahms’ music sounds autumnal, bringing an important aspect of the composer’s reception history in dialogue with key tenets of Romantic philosophy and with a close analysis of the music. Cubero has presented research at regional, national and international conferences, including the 2010 and 2012 annual meetings of the Society for Music Theory, the Seventh International Conference on Music Theory and the Eighteenth Biennial International Conference on Nineteenth-Century Music. He has taught at Indiana University and Butler University, and at IU was awarded the Wennerstrom Music Theory Associate Instructor Fellowship in recognition for his outstanding achievement in teaching.
