The repertoire fl ourished above all in choirs and ensembles in the various churches and convents in the city (especially the Sainte Chapelle and the monastery of Port Royal) as well as in Jesuit and other religious schools in general. Music was composed to be performed by child soloists in other places too, however: opera houses, theatres, lay musical schools frequented by the children of the lower nobility and the drawing rooms of the courts of Paris and Versailles. …

Faculty of Music, University of Oxford

Improvisation is arguably the most widely distributed form of musical practice - and yet remains the least studied or understood. Indeed, even the boundaries of what is or is not regarded as improvisation remain unclear. This conference will address the many faces of improvisation from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives - historical, psychological, ethnomusicological, analytical, technological, sociological, organological, and pedagogical. Over the course of four days, the conference will include papers, practical sessions, and poster presentations.

The conference is affiliated to the AHRC-funded Centre for Musical Performance as Creative Practice (CMPCP) and enjoys the support of SEMPRE, IMR, BFE, and SMA.

Contributed by Admin on Dec 19, 2011

Organized by Christian Thorau (Universität Potsdam), Hansjakob Ziemer (Max Planck Institute for the History of Science)

Since the mid-1990s and the publication of "Listening in Paris: A Cultural History" (1995), the path-breaking book by James Johnson, the history of music listening has been the focus of renewed interest in the fields of musicology, history and cultural studies. There have been a number of recent studies on music listening – as one among many forms of listening in modernity – that examine the act of listening in the concert within the broader context of music, social, cultural, and intellectual history.

Contributed by Admin on Dec 16, 2011

An International and Interdisciplinary Conference at Victoria College in the University of Toronto.

“The early modern period witnessed a dramatic increase in the migration, expulsion and exile of social groups and individuals around the globe. The physical movements of religious refugees triggered widespread, ongoing migrations that shaped both the contours of European colonialist expansion and the construction of regional, national and religious identities. Human movements (both real and imagined) also animated material culture; the presence of bodies, buildings, texts, songs and relics shaped and reshaped the host societies into which immigrants entered.
