Embedding Historical Sources in Modern-Day Performance of Romantic Music

This seminar focuses on the practice-oriented use of historical source material in the performance of music from the Romantic period. Students, teachers and researchers from KASK & Conservatorium (HOGENT - Howest), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel and Orpheus Instituut will dialogue with external researchers about their experiences, methodologies, research results and findings. This will be done through practice-oriented workshops by international researchers, followed by a round-table conference and a selection of practice-oriented ecture-performances. The study day marks the beginning of the establishment of a cross-high school research group within the field of performance practice of music from the Romantic period.
