« Following its renewed popularity in the second half of the twentieth century, the viola da gamba (viol) family is firmly ensconced within twenty-first century musical life. Quality recordings and critical editions of key repertories are readily available, the instrument is taught at many universities, and a global community of amateur players is thriving. But what of scholarly research into the viol, its music, and the cultures of playing surrounding it?
The Spirit of Gambo: the state of viol research seeks to assess the current state of viol research and suggest new paths forward for scholars and performers. The three-day conference, co-chaired by David H. Miller (University of California, Berkeley) and Zoe Weiss (University of Denver), will include paper sessions, a keynote address by Kate van Orden (Professor of Music at Harvard University), a concert, and open playing sessions. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the Journal of the Viola da Gamba Society of America. »
