« The present conference aims to investigatethe development of chamber music in the context of the variegated and complex Western musical world between the middle of the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century in light of scientific and technological progress, geopolitical upheavals, the consequent changes in social behaviors and practices, and aesthetic visions.
In particular, the conference aims to explore how chamber music developed in private social circles (families, salons, amateur gatherings, private societies) and in public concerts. Which new genres and gatherings emerged? In addition the conference will focus on the reception of the chamber music repertoire in the written accounts of musical habits (diaries, correspondence, periodicals) and contemporary music history studies — including attempts by musicographers or music critics to define an aesthetic discourse specific to chamber music (eg., the sublime, lyrical, intimate) — also dwelling on analytical and theoretical approaches applied to chamber music repertoire, such as narratology, organicism (developing variation, cyclical theme, Grundgestalt), neo-Riemannian theory, Schenkerian or reductive analysis, or Caplin’s theory of formal functions. »
