CALL FOR PAPERS – FIMTE 2016
13th Symposium on Spanish Keyboard Music “Diego Fernández”:
GRANADOS IN CONTEXT: THE SPANISH PIANO SCHOOL AND PRE-WAR ARTISTIC MOVEMENTS

Parador de Mojácar, Almería, SEPTEMBER 16 – 17, 2016

Chairs: Michael Christoforidis (University of Melbourne) – Walter Clark (University of California, Riverside) – Luisa Morales (FIMTE, Almería/University of Melbourne)

The Catalan piano school, whose antecedents are to be found in Joan Baptiste Pujol and Felip Pedrell, is the origin of what is now known as the Spanish national piano school, represented by Albéniz, Granados and Falla. To this generation of pianist-composers, Paris was a most significant reference point. From the late 1880s, when Granados studied in Paris, the French capital was a centre for the growing interest in early music, and also served as a key site for the emerging voice of Spanish musical identity, visited frequently by Spanish performers and composers.
This symposium will explore the works of Granados in the context of Spanish and French artistic movements, from Early Music revivals and the Goyesque to Alhambrism and Modernisme in the years preceding World War I.

We welcome 200-250 word abstracts for 20-minute papers, as well as proposals for lecture- concerts (30-minutes) and concerts (one hour). Abstracts should be signed at the bottom with the author’s name, institutional affiliation or city of residence and full return address, including e-mail address.

Official languages: English and Spanish

Symposium fee (including Symposium dinner) EUR 180

Deadline for abstracts: May 15, 2016
