A musician cannot prove him- or herself as an artist without an audience, without a performance space, without the support of a benefactor, without an instrument builder to create musical instruments – the musician’s performing tools, without a reviewer who would spread the musician’s fame. He or she could probably have not become an artist without a teacher, or music to be performed – either from memory, or from a manuscript or a print. All these persons and artefacts make part of the infrastructure that enables The Artist to realise his or her special gifts, and each of them is a part of or creates their own network.
As, for example, a musicological or a cultural project theme gathers people in a vertical network in order to achieve a common goal, a musician creates various horizontal networks in achieving their own goal, an event that would give the musician the opportunity to present his or her artistic qualities in public (concerts, theatre performances) or in private (salon).

Through the Prism of Chopin: Reimagining the 19th Century
International Chopinological Congress
Warsaw, 1–4 December 2020

On the threshold of the nineteenth century, the hierarchy of the aims of music and the means employed to attain them changed, thereby affecting the relationships among musical works, their composers and their listeners. Our understanding of this new and complex situation of the musical work is enhanced by grounding the objects of interest in relevant contexts, not only comparing them with other works of the same type and genre, but also taking account of the specificities of the times, social practices, intellectual currents, reception history, and so on.

In this Congress, we hope to examine the nineteenth century from the perspective of Chopin’s work, taking the composer as a starting or reference point for our considerations. By creating a forum for comparative study, both within musicology and music theory and also on an interdisciplinary plane, we hope to interpret the nineteenth century partly from perspectives that derive from other humanistic disciplines, including literary studies, the visual arts, art history, psychology, sociology and cultural economics.

Music and the Spanish Civil War

8 – 10 October 2020, Humboldt University, Berlin

Convened by Diego Alonso (Postdoctoral Fellow, Humboldt University, Berlin) in collaboration with the International Hanns Eisler Society, Berlin. The conference is supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

Deadline for submissions: 1 March 2020

Keynote speakers:
Michael Christoforidis (U. of Melbourne, Australia)
Gemma Pérez Zalduondo (U. of Granada, Spain)

Until recently, the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939) was frequently considered a time of paralysis, a parenthesis between the rich musical life of early 20th-century Spain and the new cultural and musical landscape of post-war Spain under Franco’s dictatorship. Accordingly, we still lack a thorough account of the role played by music and music criticism in this crucial period of Spain’s recent history. Similarly, the international impact of the Civil War on music has been explored only sporadically. These studies have focused primarily on a few musicians and a small selection of works, rather than more fully examining the range of activities, productions and debates involving music in and beyond Spain.

Visualising the Unseen: Music in Visual Culture
20th International Conference of Association RIdIM
Prague, Národní Muzeum, České Muzeum Hudby
16-18 July 2020

Association Répertoire Internationale d’Iconographie Musicale, in cooperation with the Czech National Museum Prague will host its 20th International Conference from 16 to 18 July 2020.

We invite proposals from researchers in the humanities and the social and cultural sciences to engage with the topic of visual culture, music iconography and music iconology.

It is a common topos that Music is described as the art of the unseen. The focus of this conference is on the different and diverse models that, since the known beginnings of reflection about music, have been used to understand, illustrate and explain the power of music to influence human existence. Often allocated to a transcendental place, beyond the visual, many of these models adhere in their mode of construction, or in descriptions of their impact, to imagery – be it myths such as that of Apollo and Marsyas, or Orpheus, the 12th-centruy Sankrit Hindu poem Gitagovinda illustrated by Manaku and Nainsukh of Guler in the 18th century, cosmic constructions or landscapes that relate the “real” and visible with the “transcendental” and unseen. The conference will delve into materialisations of these models that theorise music and their visualisations in different media.

Financing Music in Europe from the 18th to the Early 20th Century

The Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini of Lucca, in collaboration with Palazzetto Bru Zane – Centre de musique romantique française, Venice, is pleased to invite submissions of proposals for the symposium «Financing Music in Europe from the 18th to the Early 20th Century», to be held in Lucca, Complesso Monumentale di San Micheletto, from 16 to 18 October 2020.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Katharine Ellis (University of Cambridge)
  • Yannick Simon (Université de Rouen Normandie)

The ways in which music was financed from the 18th to the early 20th centuries has usually been depicted as a slow transition from private investment (or patronage) to more public forms of financial support. In particular, the later 18th and earlier 19th centuries marked fundamental changes in European life with the development of new technologies and expanding market economies.

Baltic Musicological Conference 2020
Vilnius, 10–12 September 2020

Organized by the Department of Music History at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, the Lithuanian-Polish research project “Music of Change: Expression of Liberation in Polish and Lithuanian Music Before and After 1989” and the Musicological Section of the Lithuanian Composers’ Union

The employment of music as a form of cultural opposition and transformative power is a multifunctional process that implies an extension of the thematic and disciplinary borders to the complex relations of the music’s cultural, socio-economic, and political contexts. However, such approach requires to provide a space for deep engagements in music and its various worlds overcoming a simplified understanding of musical practices as a reflection of social structures and political processes. As Jacques Attali writes on the relationship between music and societal structures, music “makes audible the new world that will gradually become visible, that will impose itself and regulate the order of things; it is not only the image of things, but the transcending of the everyday, the herald of the future” (Attali 1985).

Myriad Materialities: Towards a New Global Writing of Colonial Ports and Port Cities

10 and 11 July 2020
Ethnologisches Museum Berlin, Germany

Keynote Speakers:

Emily Clark
(History, Tulane University)

Jin-Ah Kim
(Musicology, Hankuk University of Foreign Studies & Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin)

Myriad Materialities is a two-day conference organised by the Colonial Ports and Global History (CPAGH) Network at TORCH, The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities, and the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. It will be held at the Ethnologisches Museum Berlin on 10 and 11 July 2020.

This interdisciplinary conference draws attention to the materialities ‘beyond the marine’ of colonial ports and port cities, with a view to re/assessing colonial contact and its longer-term impact, and the concomitant circulation of goods and ideas across the centuries and continents. Situating these peopled encounters and penetrating their initial interface will shed new light on materiality and its mutability, notably the conditions by which the negotiation of identities and inscription of subjectivities are imbricated with different ecologies and infrastructures.

Title: Music and Science from Leonardo to Galileo
Conference dates: 13-15 November 2020
Location: Lucca, Complesso Monumentale di San Micheletto
CFP Deadline: 29 March 2020
Keynote Speakers:
• Victor Coelho (Boston University)
• Rudolf Rasch (Utrecht University)
The relationship between music and science is particularly close during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and both fields develop and thrive through their often confrontational relationship with patronage, the church, and between theory and practice. During Antiquity and the Middle Ages, music was one of the artes liberales, the inverse proportionality between string length and pitch understood as a model for relationships between art and science. In the modern era, musical sound (and acoustics) has had implications for both music and physics.

Literaturpop. Zur pop‑ und rockmusikalischen Rezeption literarischer Texte

Universität zu Köln, 24.-26.2.2021

Dass sich Songtexte aus Pop‑ und Rockmusik auch als Literatur lesen lassen, ist nicht erst seit der Verleihung des Literaturnobelpreises an Bob Dylan 2016 bekannt. Gerade in jüngster Zeit hat man lyrics vermehrt mit literaturwissenschaftlichem Interesse betrachtet. Wenig beachtet worden ist dabei allerdings ein Phänomen, das sich bei näherem Hinsehen als weit verbreitet erweist: die popmusikalische Vertonung von Literatur bzw. die Rezeption literarischer Texte in Pop‑ und Rockmusik. Die Bezüge der Populärmusik zur Literatur sind, so ist festzustellen, bislang vernachlässigt worden ‒ dabei sind sie zu hören und nachzulesen in und mit den Medien, derer sich die Popmusik bedient (Tonträger, Albumcover, Songtitel und Texte, etc.), wo sie die Form von wörtlichen Vertonungen, von vertonten Um‑ und Nachdichtungen, Zitaten, Anspielungen, Hommagen oder Pastiches annehmen. Das Material ist reichhaltig und die sprachlichen Verarbeitungsformen der jeweiligen Textvorlagen ebenso vielfältig wie ihre musikalischen Umsetzungen. Entstanden sind weitgehend textgetreue Vertonungen (z.B. Kate Bushs „Flower of the Mountain“, dessen Text aus den letzten Zeilen von James Joyces Ulysses besteht) am einen Ende, aber auch rein instrumentale Umsetzungen am anderen Ende des Spektrums (z.B. viele der Alben von Tangerine Dream).

Thanks to a long tradition that began with Bach’s contemporary, Padre Martini,  Italy is considered today as a “Bachian” country. 

The past 250 years have seen an abundance of creative interactions with Bach and his music, including numerous transcriptions, arrangements and editions, scholarly and non-scholarly writings, Bach festivals, recordings and the use of Bach’s music in the media.

Out of respect for this history, we formed JSBach.it to improve communication and coordination of Italian Bach activities, to facilitate and encourage academic and artistic research, and to promote its dissemination nationally and internationally.​

XVI. Symposium zur Filmmusikforschung

in Kooperation mit der Kieler Gesellschaft für Filmmusikforschung

vom 9. bis zum 11. Juli 2020

Deadline für Einreichungen: 31. März 2020

Wenngleich die Geschichte des Animationsfilms fast so weitverzweigt und langlebig ist wie die Geschichte des Films überhaupt, bleibt der „nichtrealistische“ Modus der Animation oft wenig beachteter Cousin des Spielfilms. Dabei ist gerade die Musikgestaltung seit Anbeginn besonderen Herausforderungen unterworfen, ersetzt doch oft das Ineinandergreifen von Sounddesign und Musik die fehlende Abbildung filmischer Realität. Während im Spielfilm Musik oft als eine Art „akustische Zutat“ betrachtet wird, die den ‚on location‘Ton unnötig verfremdet oder notdürftig ergänzt, ist eine solche Trennung im Animationsfilm nicht gegeben, da das Bewegtbild ebenso wie die Musik eine Komposition darstellt, die offensichtlich artifiziell erstellt wird. Eine Debatte über ‚realistischen‘ Ton und ‚unrealistische‘ Musik erübrigt sich daher in den meisten Fällen.

Book Publication on South African Music and Music Research

The South African College of Music, UCT and the Musicology Seminar, University of Heidelberg, are planning a book publication on South African music and music research. The publication forms part of a larger, three-year project on “Tertiary Music Education in Post-Apartheid South Africa” funded by the DAAD programme “Subject-Related Partnerships with Institutions of Higher Education in Developing Countries”.

South Africa boasts a landscape of highly diverse music traditions, many of which do not fit easily into any one of the conventional categories within music studies. In the past 25 years music research in South Africa has started to take cognisance of this diversity and developed an equally diverse range of approaches to the study of music in South Africa. The planned publication aims to pay tribute to this diversity in musical traditions and approaches to the study of music in South Africa. We call for contributions which exemplify these approaches in relation to a concrete example.

XV International Conference of the Department of Musicology,
University of Arts in Belgrade, Faculty of Music
Belgrade, 22 to 24 October 2020

The Department of Musicology of the Faculty of Music, University of Arts in Belgrade, is pleased to announce its Fifteenth International Conference on the topic Music–Musicology–Interpretation.
The subject of the conference Music-Musicology-Interpretation focuses on the complex and multifaceted relationships between the constituent concepts. It proposes to re-examine these multiple relations by thematizing, from the point of view of interpretation, music as language, discourse, work of art and text, the performance of music and the discourse on music – musicology itself.

Musical hermeneutics as a discipline is today the focus of musicological interest. During the last three decades of the 20th century, it developed in parallel with research into musical semiotics and, as the influence of “pure” structural analysis was waning, it became an important current of thought about music at the beginning of the 21st century. Its renewal in relation to the legacy of the 19th century was partly due to interpretive criticism in Anglo-Saxon literature but also to the works of Carl Dahlhaus in the 1970s and 1980s. Next come researchers into hermeneutics and interpretive criticism and analysis, each with a different orientation in their individual pathways and objects of study, most of whom are still active today: Joseph Kerman, Nicholas Cook, Leo Treitler, Lawrence Kramer, Robert Hatten, Eero Tarasti, Jean-Jacques Nattiez, Michel Imberty, Bernard Vecchione, Christian Hauer, Makis Solomos...

• Germán Gan Quesada (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)

The word “resistance” is often associated with the wars that marked the history of the twentieth century. The music of “resistance” found a huge space in popular music, but also in celebratory and protest works with which many composers reacted to the violence of dictatorship. But in a broader sense, the word resistance is also used in modern forms of musical art in association with anti-fascist themes, or linked to social rights movements (women, LGBT movements) and ethnic groups, or as a means of generational identity (such as punk, hip-hop or rap).

Auftaktveranstaltung zur Tagungsreihe „Kontrapunkt-Traditionen“
18. ‒ 20. November 2020, Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien

In Kooperation der Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien (Dr. Patrick Boenke), der Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Prof. Dr. Birger Petersen) sowie der Hochschule für Musik und Theater Rostock (Prof. Dr. Yvonne Wasserloos) ist eine Tagungsreihe unter dem Titel „Kontrapunkt-Traditionen“ in Vorbereitung. Die Veranstaltungen wollen sich dem Thema in drei Schritten nähern. Als Ausgangspunkt soll die Rolle des Kontrapunktes im ausgehenden 18. Jahrhundert vor dem Hintergrund einerseits seiner sich wandelnden Bedeutung für die zeitgenössische Kompositionslehre, andererseits genereller und tiefgreifender Veränderungen im Wissenschafts- und Kunstverständnis der Zeit diskutiert werden. Daran anknüpfend soll im zweiten Schritt der Blick auf die Kontrapunktlehren des 19. Jahrhunderts gerichtet werden, die zahlreich im Umfeld der neu gegründeten Konservatorien entstanden und dem Kontrapunkt zu einer neuen Stellung als kunstakademische Disziplin durch musiktheoretische, ästhetische sowie pädagogische Intentionen aufhalfen. Aufbauend auf den erlangten Erkenntnissen soll schließlich in einem dritten Schritt in einer erweiterten Perspektive nach der Internationalisierung von Kontrapunktlehren und kulturellen Austauschprozessen gefragt werden. Die Auftaktveranstaltung an der Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien soll in den Tagen vom 18. bis 20. November 2020 stattfinden, die Folgeveranstaltungen in Mainz und Rostock im Sommersemester 2021 bzw. Wintersemester 2021/22.

Sakralarchitektur, Ritus und Musik zwischen Byzanz und dem Westen (6.–15. Jahrhundert)

Internationale und interdisziplinäre Tagung

Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz / Leibniz-Institut für Europäische Geschichte,
21.–23. Januar 2021

Konzeption und Organisation: Prof. Dr. Klaus Pietschmann und Dr. Tobias C. Weißmann (Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz)

In byzantinischer Ost- und lateinischer Westkirche waren Ritus und Messfrömmigkeit von der Spätantike bis zum Spätmittelalter in entscheidendem Maße geprägt von dem Zusammenwirken liturgischer und musikalischer Praxis mit dem sakralen Raum. Insbesondere in der Architektur und der Ausstattung mit monumentalen Goldgrundmosaiken übte Byzanz einen nachhaltigen Einfluss auf Kirchenbauten im Westen aus, von der Cappella Palatina in Palermo, dem Markusdom in Venedig, der Kathedrale Saint-Front in Périgueux bis zum Hohen Dom zu Aachen. Das Verhältnis von byzantinischem zum altrömischen und gregorianischen Choral und die spätere Entwicklung der vokalen Kirchenmusik in Ost und West rückte in den letzten Jahren vermehrt in den Fokus der Forschung. Wie jüngere Studien gezeigt haben, reagierten byzantinische Sakralbauten nicht nur auf liturgische, zeremonielle und musikalische Anforderungen, sondern auch umgekehrt beeinflussten architektonische Innovationen den Ritus und die Kirchenmusik. Auch für den lateinischen Westen sind solche Phänomene an diversen Sakralräumen im Mittelmeerraum herausgestellt worden.
Die geplante Tagung nimmt das bislang meist disziplinär separiert untersuchte Wechselspiel von Sakralarchitektur, Ritus und Musik von der Spätantike bis zum Spätmittelalter erstmals in vergleichender Perspektive zwischen Byzanz und dem Westen in den Blick und fragt nach Transferprozessen zwischen dem Byzantinischen Reich und dem Europa-Mittelmeerraum. Der Fokus liegt hierbei auf dem sakralen Raum in seiner performativen Funktion im liturgischen und zeremoniellen Kontext. Die leitenden Fragestellungen lauten: Inwiefern beeinflussten synodale bzw. konziliare Beschlüsse und liturgische Neuerungen in Ost und West die Konstruktion oder Modifikation von Kirchenbauten sowie die kirchenmusikalische Kompositions- und Aufführungspraxis im sakralen Raum? Welche Räume waren für die musikalische Performanz vorgesehen und wie wurde diese von Zeitgenossen wahrgenommen? Wie ist das Verhältnis der monumentalen gemalten oder mosaizierten Bildprogramme mit den Texten und Gesängen der liturgischen Feiern zu bewerten? Welche Gemeinsamkeiten, Unterschiede und Wechselwirkungen lassen sich für den skizzierten Phänomenbereich zwischen byzantinischer Ost- und römischer Westkirche ausmachen?
