Pierre de la Rue and Music at the Habsburg-Burgundian Court

20-23 November 2018, Mechelen
Venue: Mechelen, Hof van Busleyden (Belgium)
Deadline 15 April 2018, all information on the conference

20 November 2018 will mark the quincentenary of the death of Pierre de la Rue, leading composer at the Habsburg-Burgundian court. In honour of this renowned yet still under-studied master, the Alamire Foundation, International Centre for the Study of Music in the Low Countries and the Department of Musicology (KU Leuven) is organizing a conference from Tuesday 20 November to Friday 23 November 2018. The conference will take place at the ‘Busleyden Court’ in Mechelen. The court, a beautiful Renaissance palace once owned by the humanist Hieronymus Busleyden (+ 1517), counselor of Margaret of Austria and friend of Erasmus, will function as Mechelen’s new City Museum from June 2018. The so-called Mechelen Choirbook, one of the largest and best-preserved of the music manuscripts made in the workshop of Petrus Alamire (+ 1536) and an important source for la Rue’s music, will be permanently displayed there.

The conference aims to treat both Pierre de la Rue himself as well as the context for his life and work. Possible themes include (but are not limited to): genres and individual works; models, borrowing, and compositional techniques; authenticity; liturgical and courtly contexts; sources and dissemination; biography and patrons; influences, legacy, and reception; colleagues and contemporaries.
