This conference, the first devoted to Telemann outside of Germany, commemorates the 250th anniversary of his death in 1767. Recent decades have seen a dramatic growth in scholarship on the composer, with his vocal music attracting particular attention. The result has been an increasingly nuanced picture of one of the eighteenth century's most significant musical figures. The conference will be at the center of a week-long festival of Telemann's music, in partnership with Tempesta di Mare (tempestadimare.org). Festival events will include a live interdisciplinary talk show and concerts featuring recently discovered and infrequently heard works.
We welcome proposals for 30-minute papers on a broad range of topics related to Telemann's life and music, as well as to the cultural, social, and religious environments in which he worked. Please send abstracts of up to 300 words as a Word document [last name_first name.docx] to telemann -at- temple.edu by 1 March 2017. Along with your name, institutional affiliation or city of residence, and email address, indicate any audio, visual, or other needs for the presentation. Applicants will be notified of the program committee's decision by early April 2017.
