The music of György Ligeti in the world of teaching

15-16 December 2023, Alessandria
Call for papers
International conference

The Conservatory “Antonio Vivaldi" of Alessandria (Italy) is organizing the international conference "The music of György Ligeti in the world of teaching". The conference will be held in person on 15-16 December 2023. If it becomes necessary, hybrid and/or online modes of participation will be employed.

Ligeti's music is becoming increasingly popular in the concert, conservatory, and academic arenas. Yet the rich philosophical and analytical depths of this music are not so well-known, especially in pedagogical contexts. Scholars and pedagogues are therefore invited to submit abstracts concerning different types of didactic approach to the composer's works. Considering the three compositional periods of Ligeti's production and research, which didactic approaches and which indications can be provided to students in order to investigate the musical material and become aware users? The multiple proposals of the conference will emerge from this question.

A keynote speaker will be announced when the conference program is
