Congrès international : Giuseppe Tartini (1692-1770) European Paths, Networks, Legacy

In recent years an increasingly large group of international scholars has focused on the multifaceted figure of Giuseppe Tartini – composer, musician, theorist – and his impact on eighteenth-century culture. In this conference, leading musicologists and musicians from Italy, Austria, Germany, France, Slovenia, Portugal, and Switzerland, will present new perspectives and findings on historiographical, philological, editorial, and performative problems of Tartini’s music and the music culture in his milieu. The symposium will foster a deeper understanding of how compositional and performance practices were conceptualized and transmitted in the Age of Enlightenment, shedding light also on the transnational networks between Tartini, his pupils, and their patrons, active in important European courts and chapels of the time. Moreover, the meeting will offer opportunities to discuss modern digital dissemination of Tartini’s works.

The conference papers will also cover topics such as:

  • up-to-date scientific criteria in editions and catalogues
  • problems of spurious attribution
  • the weigth of Tartini’s music-theoretical and philosophical ideas in his culture
  • women composers and performers who studied with Tartini and their active role in the musical culture of the time
  • the role of Tartini’s pupils in the longevity of his legacy and presence of his works in the active repertory
  • current strategies and problems in disseminating Tartini’s studies
