Symposium of the Institute for History of Musical Reception and Interpretation at Salzburg Mozarteum University

December 16th–18th, 2011

“Apostrophizing “The End of Early Music” Bruce Haynes in 2007 pointed out an evident development that had been perceived as a sort of subliminal crisis for some time: a certain incrustation connected with commercialization of Early Music. Have those tendencies actually withdrawn substantial impulses, have teaching, presentation and performance actually got stuck? How has the present practice of Early Music developed? Which basic approaches – on the one hand from the studies of source material, or on the other hand from research projects of historical oriented interpretation – can be acquired for the future?

Contributed by Admin on Aug 02, 2011

A Royal Musical Association Study Day in association with the Sixteenth-/Seventeenth-Century Music Network (SSMN):

Domestic Music in Recusant Circles in Elizabethan and Jacobean Times
A Forum for Students, Performers and Researchers
Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge on 26 November 2011
Guest speaker: Kerry McCarthy (Duke University, USA)

CALL FOR PAPERS

Some exceptional music was created during the Elizabethan and early Jacobean periods, and some of it was inspired by the religious uncertainties and suppression that existed at the time. The wealth of music was possible in part through the interest and generous patronage provided by many of the wealthy, educated and influential English Catholics who retired from court to their country estates where they cultivated the arts in the freedom of their privacy. This forum is an attempt to bring together research into the many aspects of domestic music in the network of English Catholics.
