23-25 August 2018, Antwerp
Venue: Antwerp, Campus Carolus & AMUZ
Call for Papers - deadline 1 May 2018,
Organised by the KU Leuven (Department of Musicology), Alamire Foundation (Leuven) and AMUZ, Flanders Festival-Antwerp
In 2014 a tiny music manuscript was sold in Brussels that turned out to be a previously entirely unknown late fifteenth-century chansonnier, complete and in its original cloth binding. The appearance of a new such source of any kind is extremely rare, and all the more so of one in unaltered form. Repertoire and physical characteristics date the chansonnier to c. 1470-75, and mark it out as a prestigious, personal object for wealthy nobility. The discovery adds to our understanding of fifteenth-century song in numerous ways. Among others, it deepens knowledge of the ways in which fifteenth-century song was consumed; it deepens knowledge of the circulation of fifteenth-century courtly song; it provides a new witness for known works, including the most popular songs of the time; and, most spectacularly, it adds no less than twelve new pieces to the fifteenth-century song repertory.
The conference in Antwerp aims to treat the musical and historical context of the chansonnier, including poetry, fifteenth-century chanson culture, chansonniers more broadly, repertoire dissemination, and variant versions. The conference will end with four concerts presenting the repertoire of the chansonnier in its entirety.
