Seventh Biennial Conference on Music in Nineteenth-Century Britain


Seventh Biennial Conference on Music in Nineteenth-Century Britain 2009
(University of Bristol)

Call for Papers

The seventh biennial conference on music in 19th-century Britain will be
held at the Department of Music, University of Bristol, with the support of
CHOMBEC (the Centre for the History of Music in Britain, the Empire and the
Commonwealth), from Thursday, 23rd July to Sunday, 26th Friday 2009.

Abstracts of up to 300 words are invited for individual papers of 20
minutes length, lecture recitals, themed panels or roundtables, and should
reach Dr Guido Heldt either by e-mail or snail mail at the addresses below
not later than Friday, 5th December 2008.

As 2009 will see 'round' anniversaries of the birth or death of George
Frideric Handel, Joseph Haydn, Felix Mendelssohn and Louis Spohr, we would
like to encourage papers on the relationship between these composers and
music in 19th-century Britain, and about musical cross-channel
relationships in the 19th century in general. This is by no means supposed
to be a conference theme, though, just an opportunity for a few sessions
focusing on such questions, and of course and as in previous years
proposals on any aspect of music in 19th-century Britain are welcome.
