Call for Papers and Creative Works
The RNCM and University of Glasgow are pleased to invite submissions to two related events designed to mark the centenary of the death of Claude Debussy on March 25, 1918. The first of these, the ‘Debussy Perspectives' Conference at the RNCM (19-21 March, 2018), will bring together world experts and emerging scholars to reflect critically on the current state of Debussy research of all kinds, including editions and sketches; critical and interpretative approaches; textual and cultural-historical analysis; and Debussy's legacy in performance, recording, composition, and arrangement.
Then, our Glasgow event, ‘Debussy's Late work and the Musical Worlds of Wartime Paris' (22-23 March, 2018), will be focused mainly on the music Debussy (and others) created during the First World War, while also considering his immediate postwar reception as well as more recent audiovisual responses to his work. Performance and ‘practice as research' will claim a central place at both events, through (e.g.) vocal and chamber music workshops, a piano recital by Philippe Cassard, an orchestral concert by the RNCM Symphony Orchestra, and a culminating chamber concert that will feature Debussy's late sonatas alongside new compositions written for the three ensembles (out of six) he did not live to complete.
We are delighted to announce as our keynote speakers: Professor Denis Herlin, CNRS, IReMUS (Manchester) and Dr. Marianne Wheeldon, University of Texas, Austin (Glasgow).
We acknowledge the generous support of the Royal Northern College of Music, University of Glasgow and IReMus.
Deadlines for abstracts: 1 September 2017 to research -at- rncm.ac.uk.
