Appel à contributions pour le volume Exploring the Performance Practices of Early and New Music, dirigé par Rebecca Cypess, Estelí Gomez et Rachael Lansang.
« Synergies in the performance practices of early music and contemporary solo and chamber music are widely acknowledged, but until now, they have scarcely been explored in writing. The work of numerous ensembles, soloists, and performer–composers demonstrates the compatibility of careers in early music and new music, since both fields demand similar performance practices and approaches to musical creativity. Moreover, some contemporary composers have begun to seek out collaborations with specialists in early music to build on the performance practices that such specialists cultivate. In some cases, composers have drawn on their own experience in the performance of early music for the creation of new music.
