      From Pathétique to Tempest: Beethoven's Romantic Breakthrough


      Date: University of Leuven, March 23-24, 2006

      Place: Faculty of Arts, Erasmushuis - Justus Lipsius Room,
      Blijde Inkomststraat 21, Leuven, BELGIUM

      Presidents of the Conference:
      Prof. Dr. Pieter Bergé (University of Leuven)
      Dr. Jeroen D'hoe (Lemmensinstituut Leuven)
      Prof. Dr. William Caplin (McGill University Montreal)

      Reading Committee:
      Prof. Dr. Pieter Bergé (University of Leuven)
      Prof. Dr. Poundie Burstein (Hunter College New York)
      Prof. Dr. William Caplin (McGill University Montreal)
      Dr. Jeroen D'hoe (Lemmensinstituut Leuven)
      Prof. Dr. William Rothstein (Queens College New York)
      Prof. Dr. Janet Schmalfeldt (Tufts University Massachusetts)


      This two-day conference is entirely devoted to the analysis of Beethoven's piano sonatas from the Sonate Pathétique op.13 up to the three sonatas op.31. All possible types of music analysis are welcomed, but lectures that explicitly link analytical topics to performance practice issues are highly encouraged.
      Lectures will be grouped in relation to the works that are analysed, encouraging the confrontation and comparison of different analytical approaches. Therefore, contributors themselves are invited to organise sessions, in which one single work, movement or fragment is investigated from different analytical points of view.
      Given the importance of the performance aspect of the lectures, collaboration with performing artists is highly recommended. One modern piano and one pianoforte will be at disposal at the conference.
      Lectures may not exceed 25 minutes of reading. Other presentation forms, such as lecture-performances, are warmly welcomed and may be longer (to be determined per case). Contributors are urgently requested not to read texts meant for scholarly publication, and to seriously consider the aural attractiveness of their lectures. On the other hand, fully reworked, written-out versions of the lectures will be considered for publication.

      Abstracts (max. 500 words) must be sent by December 20th 2005, to both Pieter Bergé (pieter.berge at arts.kuleuven.be) and Jeroen D'hoe (jeroen.dhoe at skynet.be). The conference program will be communicated to all applicants by the end of January 2006. Please include the name of the applicant, the name of the institution, e-mail-address, post-address, and phone number.
