Antwerp, 18 – 23 August 2015
In August 2015 the Alamire Foundation, International Centre for the Study of Music in the Low Countries, and the KU Leuven Musicology Dept. (B), will organize an ambitious conference centred on the music scribe Petrus Alamire and his manuscripts. The event will coincide with an extended edition of the early music festival “Laus Polyphoniae” (19 – 30 August) and the opening of a digital exhibition of Alamire’s production in Antwerp Cathedral (B).
The conference aims to consolidate the most recent research on the manuscripts of the Habsburg-Burgundian Court Complex. Furthermore, with the Alamire manuscripts as focus, the conference aims in particular to link musicological research and performers.
