Events Description

The 18th Biennial International Conference on Baroque Music will be hosted by the Musicology and Cultural Heritage Department of Pavia University in Cremona.

Proposals in any area of Baroque music are welcome. Given the location of the venue, the overarching theme for this conference will be ‘Crossing Borders: Music, Musicians and Instruments: 1550-1750’.

Proposals for papers may be submitted in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. However, all presentations at the conference will be delivered in English.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is Friday 12 January 2018.

The programme committee invites proposals for:

  • Individual papers of 20 minutes in duration (followed by questions and discussion). Speakers will be grouped into sessions of three or four papers in related areas.
  • Lecture-recitals of 40 minutes in duration (with 10 minutes for discussion).
  • Themed and round-table sessions of one and a half hours including discussion.

Individuals may submit one proposal in the form of an abstract of not more than 250 words (individual papers, lecture-recitals) or not more than 350 words (round-table sessions). For lecture-recital, attach also the repertoire and a sample recording.

The organisers anticipate that individual papers and some round-table sessions will be presented in parallel sessions, grouped by subject areas. Those areas will be determined by the nature of the proposals received. Acceptance of proposals will be at the discretion of the organisers.

The abstract should be preceded by information under the following headings:

  • Name
  • Institution
  • Postal address
  • Phone
  • Email Address

Abstracts should be emailed to Massimiliano Guido by attachment (MS word file or .rtf format are required).
