Integrated Repository of Musical Resources at the Research Institute for Digital Media and Content (DMC), Keio University
In Japan, there are many unavailable collections of musical sources (musical notes, books on music, etc.). Of primary consideration is the Nanki Music Library, founded by Marquis Yorisada Tokugawa (1892-1954) in Azabu-Iikura, Tokyo in 1918, which includes autographs of Beethoven, Liszt, and other composers. The Nanki Music Library was the first public musical library in Japan and actively collected many rare musical sources from throughout the world, such as the bibliotheca of William Hayman Cummings (1831-1915), a British music educator. The Library was closed to the public in 1931 due to financial difficulty of the Tokugawa family; nevertheless, international attention has remained focused on the collection.
Summer School of Early Music is an Early Music course targeting the historically informed performance mainly of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque Music. Some of the recorder classes concentrate on contemporary, world and folk music.
The workshop takes place every July in beautiful South Bohemian town Prachatice (130 km south from Prague, 200 km north-west of Vienna). In 2010 we will be there for the 12th time, until 1998 the course took place in Bechyně.
