2-5 novembre 2017, Lvov
Deadline: 18 June 2017
Haliciana Schola Cantorum, L'viv, Ukraine
In 1999, after decades of research, Prof. Dr. Christoph Wolff found the manuscripts from the library of the Sing-Akademie zu Berlin, which had been considered lost, in the Archive Museum of Literature and Arts of Ukraine in Kyjiv. Wolff was not only successful in locating the manuscripts but also contributed to bringing about their restitution. Since then, he has maintained cordial relations with Ukrainian researchers, archivists and students. For these reasons his work will be central to this conference.
Furthermore, the conference provides the opportunity for musicologists to present their research on musical sources, their reconstruction and preservation.
We invite proposals for individual papers on the following themes:
Work in progress: Reports on recent research on musical sources or on documents that merit study.
Completing the picture: Newly found sources pertaining to the work and life of famous, lesser known or unknown composers.
In the shadows: Lost documents – hypotheses and legends.
Reassessments: Musical works on which academic research is lacking or faulty because of their physical location.
Focus I: Musical sources in Eastern Europe before and after the "Iron Curtain".
Focus II: Traces of Eastern European composers in Western European collections.
It is one of the aims of this conference to encourage knowledge sharing amongst archivists and librarians, and we particularly encourage their participation.
Official conference languages: Ukrainian, English, German and Polish.
Abstracts should be no more than 2000 signs and be accompanied by a short biography. Please submit to: hsc.lviv -at- gmail.com
