Second Roberto Gerhard International Conference 2012

The second international Roberto Gerhard conference will take place at the Coservatori de Liceu, Barcelona, 24-26 April, 2012. It is intended to develop the areas of study discussed during the first conference in May, 2010, by covering as wide a spectrum of Gerhard’s activities as possible, therefore papers exploring all aspects of Gerhard’s life and works are invited: analytical, biographical, historical or philosophical; his contribution to Spanish musical scholarship and the study of Catalan traditional music.
The programme will include a visit to Valls, Gerhard’s birthplace, where guest speakers will include Mariona Agusti, daughter of Conxita Badia, and Ferran Gerhard, Roberto’s nephew
There will be two concerts, one in Valls and one by students of the Conservatori de Liceu.
Dead line for abstracts: 30 November, 2011.
