The Instrumental Capriccio from the second half of XVIIth to the end of XIXth Century

27 ottobre 2018, Genova
Conservatorio Niccolò Paganini
International Study Day :

In 2013, the German flautist and musicologist Nikolaus Delius donated his entire music collection to “N. Paganini” Conservatory of music of Genoa.

The Dono Delius includes a sizeable body of materials, divided into different sections: Essays, Printed music, Copies of manuscripts and ancient editions, Study materials, and a collection of CDs. The Dono Delius catalogue can be accessed to the web page

Recently, research activities based on the Dono Delius have progressively increased: the realization of several study days, seminars, workshops and concerts has fostered the creation of a Study Centre for students, flautists and musicologists, with the purpose to encourage a deeper understanding of several outstanding questions concerning the flute and its literature.

The 2018 Study Day focuses on the Capriccio within the Instrumental Solo Repertoire, giving special attention to flute music. The Study Day is supported by the Società Italiana di Musicologia.

We invite proposals for papers under the following and related themes:

  1. The instrumental Capriccio: formal and stylistic features;
  2. Peculiarities of the Capriccio within the flute repertoire;
  3. Relationships/parallelisms between the different instrumental repertoires;
  4. New information and investigations on the sources.
