Meyerbeer and French Grand opéra

(Call for Papers)

12-14 septembre 2014, Pistoia

organized by Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini (Lucca/Pistoia) ; Palazzetto Bru Zane (Centre de musique romantique française, Venice ; Associazione Amici di Groppoli (Pistoia)

Pistoia, Biblioteca Comunale Forteguerriana

The Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini of Lucca, the Palazzetto Bru Zane – Centre de musique romantique française of Venice and the Association Amici di Groppoli are pleased to invite submissions of proposals for the symposium «Meyerbeer and French Grand opéra», to be held in Pistoia, Biblioteca Comunale Forteguerriana, from Friday 12 until Sunday 14 September 2014.

Organized in conjunction with the 150° anniversary of the death of Giacomo Meyerbeer, this conference aims to celebrate this composer as well as the development of French Grand opéra after 1831 (the year of Robert le diable).

Meyerbeer's theatrical production system estabilished a Grand opéra model in France and abroad that promoted the reputationy of Parisian productions. The Mayerbeerian standard was assimilated particularly in Germany and Italy; but it also provoked severe criticism, sometimes related to extra-operatic issues such as the composer's Jewish origin.

The conference is open to a range of paper proposals, but the scientific committee would particularly welcome studies of the following:

  • Eugène Scribe and the Libretto of the Parisan Grand opéra
  • Giacomo Meyerbeer: Philology, Drama and Musical Structure
  • Véron, Duponchel, Cicéri and the Development of Parisian mise en scène
  • Livrets de mise en scène and the Notation of the Staging at the Opéra
  • Meyerbeer's Singers and Their Relationship with His Operas
  • Influence and Legacy of Meyerbeers's Grand opera
  • Meyerbeer – Berlioz – Wagner: Convergences and Mutual Influences
  • Scenographies for Meyerbeer's Operas
  • The Twentieth-Century Revival of Meyerbeer's Works

PROGRAMME COMMITTEE : Roberto Illiano, Lucca ; Étienne Jardin, Paris/Venice ; Jürgen Maehder, Berlin ; Fulvia Morabito, Lucca ; Michela Niccolai, Paris ; Massimiliano Sala, Bergamo.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS : Prof. Mark Everist (University of Southampton) ; Prof. Jürgen Maehder (Freie Universität Berlin)

The official languages of the conference will be English, French, German and Italian. Papers selected for presentation at the conference will be published in a miscellaneous volume.

Papers are limited to twenty minutes in length, allowing time for questions and discussion.

Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words and one page of biography. All proposals should be emailed to: by no later than Sunday 16 March 2013. With your proposal please include your name, contact details (postal address, e-mail and telephone number) and (if applicable) your affiliation.

The committee will make its final decisions on the abstracts by the end of April, and contributors will be informed immediately thereafter. Further information about the programme, registration, travel and accommodation will be announced after that date.

Incorporating the Transforming Musicology Challenge : 1st International Digital Libraries for Musicology workshop

Call for Papers

1st International Digital Libraries for Musicology workshop (DLfM 2014)
12th September 2014 (full day), London, UK in conjunction with the ACM/IEEE Digital Libraries conference 2014

Many Digital Libraries have long offered facilities to provide multimedia content, including music. However there is now an ever more urgent need to specifically support the distinct multiple forms of music, the links between them, and the surrounding scholarly context, as required by the transformed and extended methods being applied to musicology and the wider Digital Humanities.

The Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) workshop presents a venue specifically for those working on, and with, Digital Library systems and content in the domain of music and musicology. This includes Music Digital Library systems, their application and use in musicology, technologies for enhanced access and organisation of musics in Digital Libraries, bibliographic and metadata for music, intersections with music Linked Data, and the challenges of working with the multiple representations of music across large-scale digital collections such as the Internet Archive and HathiTrust.


What will the next generation of musicologists be studying? And how will they carry out their research? What part will digital technology play in the musicology of the future and how will future musicologists be using digital libraries?

The Transforming Musicology Challenge solicits short position paper submissions to DLfM that describe, in detail, a musicology investigation or scenario that uses, or might use in the future, the technologies relevant to DLfM. While the primary focus of Challenge papers should be musical scholarship, authors are encouraged to relate research questions to the technical challenges that must be addressed. Entries should follow all other requirements of the DLfM Call for Papers and use the Transforming Musicology Challenge submission category via Easychair. Challenge papers will be peer reviewed by the same process as general short papers. A prize winning paper will be considered for inclusion in a chapter for the forthcoming Transforming Musicology book and win an Apple iPad Mini generously donated by the Department of Computing, Goldsmiths, University of London.


Paper submission deadline: 27th June 2014 (23:59 UTC-11)
Notification of acceptance: 30th July 2014
Registration for one author per paper: 11th August 2014 (14:00 UTC)
Camera ready submission deadline: 11th August 2014 (14:00 UTC)
