The Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini of Lucca and the Palazzetto Bru Zane – Centre de musique romantique française of Venice, in collaboration with Ad Parnassum Journal and Accademia Filarmonica Romana, are pleased to invite submissions of proposals for the symposium «Jewishness & the Arts. Music and Composers in Nineteenth-Century Europe», to be held in Rome, Accademia Filarmonica Romana, from Tuesday 13 until Thursday 15 October 2015.
The present conference focuses the period which witnessed the Emancipation of the Jews, originating in Germany,from five perspectives: careers; Jewish themes; emancipation; circulation; collective representations. The conference aims to study the relationships between musical production and Jewish culture, concerning Jewish composers and beyond, within the broader context of the European Reformist movements of the nineteenth century.
The conference aims to deal with the complex world of musical production (composition, performance practice, models of musical theorisation, entertainment, performing arts and music, press criticism) during the course of the nineteenth century, at a time of revolutionary change in Jewish culture and life, spanning the Haskala movement and the first Zionist Congress (1897). The conference will analyse developments and the complex interactions wrought by Jewish Cultural heritage within the European social and economic context and its consequences for the relationships between composers, publishers, and listeners.
