Event description

Description

The ninth Bach Network Dialogue Meeting will be held at the historic house of Madingley Hall, Cambridge, from Monday 8 to Saturday morning 13 July 2019, with the formal programme running from the afternoon of Tuesday 9 to Thursday evening 11 July. By popular request we have again included a day before and after the formal programme, to facilitate networking, research discussions and the practicalities of travel.

The full programme can be accessed here.

The programme will feature sessions on a range of current topics, including the Bach 333 project, Bach and materiality, the Art of Fugue, Bach’s chorale pedagogy, musical authorship, and Bach’s contemporaries, as well as our ever-popular Early Career Forum and Flash Announcement session. Presenters and panellists will include Christine Blanken, Isabella van Elferen, Nicholas Kenyon, Kevin Korsyn, Robin A. Leaver, Michael Marissen, Paul Moseley, Derek K. Remeš, Barbara M. Reul, Stephen Roe, Stephen Rose, Joel Speerstra, Ruth Tatlow, Bettina Varwig, Christoph Wolff and Steven Zohn. In addition, we are delighted to welcome renowned harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani for an evening lecture recital, and director Paul Spicer to lead a choral singing session.

The schedule is designed with generous open discussion time, to give every delegate an opportunity to engage with the subjects. There will also be time over meals and in the wonderful gardens to continue discussions informally.

Flash Announcement Session

Every registered delegate is invited to speak for five minutes about their current research at the Flash Announcement Session. Please email the administrator, Mark Seow (seow.bachnetwork@gmail.com) with a short title as soon as possible if you would like to participate in this. The final deadline is 31 May 2019. Names and titles will be included in the programme in due course.

Early Career Forum

We encourage doctoral and post-doctoral students to present a short summary of their research topic. Traditionally we allow 10 minutes for presentations and 5 minutes for questions. For further details, please email the Forum coordinator Andrew Frampton (andrew.frampton@merton.ox.ac.uk) as soon as possible. Your name and topic title will be included in the programme in due course.

Dialogue fee

There is an inclusive Dialogue Fee of £165 for all delegates (a sponsored rate of £90 is available for students currently studying at university) to include lunches, the BBQ and teas and coffees. If you are attending for only one or two days, you may select a day rate. Students without access to any institutional funding may contact Mark Seow.

Accommodation Reservations

We have arranged a preferential rate for Bed and Breakfast accommodation at Madingley Hall. All rooms are en suite. To reserve your accommodation please check the appropriate ’ticket'. You will see the ’ticket' says ‘Free’: this is because payment will be made directly to Madingley Hall on arrival in July. Please inform Mark Seow of any cancellations 3 days before the first night of your stay, otherwise you will be liable to pay for the first night.

The standard room booking is for a single en suite room with breakfast: £75 per night. If you would like a double room (£100 per night), please contact Mark Seow to confirm your requirements. Due to the limited number of double rooms, priority will be given to couples and partners.

Dietary Requirements

Please email Mark Seow if you have any food allergies, intolerances, or other special dietary requirements.
