This conference will take place as part of a 4-year AHRC-funded research project focusing on 19th- and early 20th-century performing editions of string chamber music - texts which are invaluable sources for empirical evidence about performance practices during that period. The topics this conference is expected to address will include 19th- and early 20th-century publishing history, comparative studies of editions, performing editions and performance practices, and musical archival studies.
A formal call for papers will be circulated in October 2009.
