• THEME FOR CIM09 MUSIC AND ITS INSTRUMENTS
CIM09 – will focus on relationships between music and the instruments used for its production.
How is the music of a given culture determined or influenced by the nature of its musical instruments? How do instruments influence repertoires? How are instruments that have been developed in the context of given musical styles used in new styles? Conversely, what issues arise when old instruments are revived, or new instruments adapted, for the performance
of early music?
