THU-SUN 20 April – Saturday 22 April 2023 Join me at the Bern Academy of the Arts in Switzerland for the Sixth International Romantic Brass Symposium, “Romantic Brass in Context: 19th-Century Brass Instruments in Military, Church, Chamber, Opera, and Orchestra,” in collaboration with the Historic Brass Society.
Guests will present current research on brass instruments, concentrating on music of the long 19th century (1789–1914). Papers, lecture recitals and concerts with spoken commentary on all topics of brass instruments of the long 19th century will be included, including historically informed performance, style, repertoire, history, and instruments. We expect that presentations will be given live and in person, and the official language for the conference is English.
More details to come!
