Gesund und krank durch Musik?
Kulturelle Konzepte der Wirkung von Musik seit 1950

Tagung in Freiburg, 19. und 20. Juni 2020

Seit der Antike wird über die Wirkung von Musik auf das Wohlbefinden der Menschen nachgedacht. Vielstimmig sind die Äußerungen, die auf positive gesundheitliche Effekte abheben, seien sie körperlicher, seelischer oder geistiger Natur. Andere Autorinnen und Autoren problematisieren die Musikwirkungen und sehen eher negative Folgen, etwa eine akustische Umweltverschmutzung, die Beeinträchtigung des Gehörs durch Lärm oder eine Schädigung der Psyche, insbesondere bei jungen Menschen. Eine eigene „Pathologie“ der Musik wird hierbei diskutiert, zuweilen spielt in der Debatte auch die gezielte Schädigung von Menschen durch Musik (Terror, Folter) eine Rolle.

Internationales musikwissenschaftliches Symposion
„Kurt Schwertsik und der Begriff der Moderne im Wandel“
Donau-Universität Krems, 15. und 16. Oktober 2020

Kurt Schwertsik gehört zu den Pionieren der neuen Musik in Österreich. Seine zugängliche, denTrends der jeweiligen Avantgarde mit individuellen Mitteln begegnende Tonsprache und seine sanfteIronie lassen ihn seit Jahrzehnten als einen der populärsten Komponisten Österreichs erscheinen.

Ich entzog mich dem angemuteten Verdrängungs- und Anpassungseffekt. Mit Leibes- undGeisteskräften wehrte ich mich dagegen, vom lethargischen Einverständnis der Gesellschaft erdrücktzu werden. Ich nahm mir das Recht, einen frischen Blick auf alle geheiligten Werke unserer Kultur zutun. Ich warne jedermann, die eigenen Grenzen zu erkennen.“ (Kurt Schwertsik)

JOHANNES VON NEPOMUK: KULT – KÜNSTE – KOMMUNIKATION
TAGUNG 14.–16. OKTOBER 2020, WIEN, ÖSTERREICHISCHE AKADEMIE DER WISSENSCHAFTEN
CALL FOR PAPERS

Anlässlich der bevorstehenden Jubiläen der Selig- bzw. Heiligsprechung (1721/1729) des Heiligen Johannes von Nepomuk (~1350–1393) soll im Rahmen einer internationalen Tagung der (bereits vor der offiziellen Kanonisierung einsetzende und europaweit expandierende) Kult um diesen böhmisch-habsburgischen Heiligen diskutiert werden. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf bildlichen, architektonischen, musikalischen und textlichen Manifestationen seiner Verehrung in den Habsburgerländern vom späten 17. bis in das frühe 19. Jahrhundert.
Im Zentrum der interdisziplinären Tagung stehen übergreifende Fragestellungen wie Kontextualisierungen und Ausformungen des Kultes, Art der Vermittlung von Vita und Tugenden des Heiligen, kommunikative Funktionen sowie Intentionalität der Künste bzw. Medien.
Ausgehend vom rhetorischen Konzept von delectare, docere und movere und der Rhetorisierung der Künste stellt sich die zentrale Frage nach deren Wirkungspotential: In welchem Verhältnis stehen Bild, Architektur, Musik und Sprache zueinander? Diesbezüglich sind der Nepomuk-Kult und seine groß angelegten Feiern auf Funktion und Integration der Künste zu untersuchen, wobei auch den medienspezifischen Symbolisierungen und Darstellungsformen (Tugenden, vor allem das Schweigen als Negation von Sprache und Ton) nachgegangen werden soll.
Hauptziel der Tagung ist eine interdisziplinäre (methodische) Diskussion unterschiedlicher Herangehensweisen an einen reichen Materialbestand und dessen Auswertung. Deshalb sollten die Beiträge den Fokus weniger auf umfassende Quellendarstellungen als auf gezielte analytische Auswertungen und Kontextualisierungen der jeweiligen Dokumente legen und sich an folgenden vier Themenfeldern orientieren.

Call for Papers: “Early Recordings: The Impact of a Transformative Technology”

Submission Deadline: 10 January 2020
Conference Location: Royal College of Music, London (UK)
Date: 23 April 2020

Programme Committee:
Barbara Gentili (Newcastle University)
Trevor Herbert (Royal College of Music)
Eva Moreda Rodriguez (University of Glasgow)
Richard Wistreich (Royal College of Music)

Invited Speakers: Amy Blier-Carruthers (RAM), Tim Boon (Science Museum), Daniel Leech-Wilkinson (KCL) and Richard Wistreich (RCM).

The aim of this one-day conference is to focus on the wider cultural and social impact of the technological development and dissemination of early recordings.

The investigation of early recordings has been a booming field in recent decades. Since the groundbreaking study of Robert Philip in 1992, the shift of interest in musicology from products to processes has progressively broadened the subject’s scope. Early recordings have been co-opted as new ‘texts’ for a variety of purposes, including studies in reception, sociology, cultural and media theory, and the history of technology (Cook, Clarke, Leech-Wilkinson and Rink, 2004).

Call for Chapter Proposals: Player Pianos in Early 20th-Century Life

Abstracts due Feb. 1, 2020

Understanding of the history of player pianos and piano rolls has been growing among scholars, enthusiasts, and performers; however, knowledge remains scattered, difficult to access, and generally disconnected from mainstream music history narratives. In short, the player piano remains at the periphery of history. A major university press has encouraged the submission of a book proposal for a volume of collected essays tackling this problem.

This volume will articulate the significance of player pianos in cultural, economic, and technological histories of the early 20th century—importantly, including beyond North America. Chapters will focus on the player piano’s heyday (roughly 1900–1930), and will showcase how player pianos and piano rolls challenge or enrich already-familiar historical narratives from these years.

15th INTERNATIONAL MUSICOLOGICAL AND INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE OF THE CROATIAN MUSICOLOGICAL SOCIETY (www.hmd-music.org)
ZAGREB, CROATIA

Theme: MUSICAL NETWORKING IN THE 'LONG' 19TH CENTURY

Place and date: ZAGREB, CROATIA, OCTOBER 15-17, 2020, THE LIBRARY OF THE CROATIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES AND ARTS, STROSSMAYER SQUARE 14

Organizers: CROATIAN MUSICOLOGICAL SOCIETY, THE DEPARTMENT FOR THE HISTORY OF CROATIAN MUSIC OF THE CROATIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES AND ARTS, THE CROATIAN INSTITUTE OF HISTORY

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.

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.

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.

Bach & Italy

Turin, 26-28 November 2020

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.​

MUSIC–MUSICOLOGY–INTERPRETATION
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...

Music and Resistance

Conference dates: 11-13 December 2020

Location: Lucca, Complesso Monumentale di San Micheletto

Website: https://www.luigiboccherini.org/2018/12/08/music-and-resistance/

CFP Deadline: 26 April 2020

Keynote Speakers:

• Mark Andrew Le Vine (University of California Irvine)

• 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).
