International Seminar
Music in the Iberian Courts (XVIII-XIX centuries): patronage, repertoires, performance
October 4th and 5th, 2018 | Madrid, Universidad Complutense, Facultad de Geografia y História (Salón de Grados)

This scientific seminar aims to be a forum for researchers interested in studying the music of the Iberian courts in the 18th and 19th centuries. Music is a fundamental aspect of court culture not only in the Old Regime but also in the contemporary era. The relationship between music and constitutional monarchies is a field hitherto unexplored that we also propose to deepen. Organized by the research group “Historical and Cultural Studies in Music” of the INET-md and the Instituto Complutense de Ciencias Musicales (ICCMU) of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, this research seminar intends to be a space for the exchange, discussion and critical review of court music from an interdisciplinary perspective that allows to frame it in a broad cultural, artistic, social and political context. It is expected that this initiative will continue through future editions that will be held alternately in Madrid and Lisbon. The meeting involves recognized researchers with a consolidated trajectory along with others who are in the early stages of their careers, which will contribute to a particularly enriching exchange. This first edition will focus on three main axes: the musical patronage, the repertoires practiced in this context and several issues related to performance, such as the spaces for music or the ceremonial, with the aim of proving new contributions and perspectives about court music.
