4th Frankfurt Telemann Symposium
The conference has been organized by the Frankfurter Telemann Society in conjunction with the institute for musicology at the Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, and will be held in the Holzhausenschlösschen of the Frankfurter Bürgerstiftung.
This conference in the Telemann year 2017 – the 250th anniversary of the composer's death – proposes to examine the composer's so-called "Gebrauchsmusik" in light of its social and cultural relevance and of its place in the developing musical language of the time. Of particular interest are works which have until now received only a cursory investigation and have not appeared in critical editions (cantatas for the dedication of churches, music for the induction of parish priests, music for weddings, birthday serenades and works for political celebrations and for the schools in Hamburg and Altona).
Participants in the conference are invited to enter into a dialog with works of the above mentioned categories, whereby more general discussions of “occasional music” in the 18th century from an historical, sociological or cultural standpoint would also be most welcome.
Prospective papers should be 30 minutes in length, followed by a 15-minute interval for discussion. Conference languages are German and English. Interested parties are requested to submit a short (500 words or less) summary of their proposed topic, preferably per email, to:
Prof. Dr Thomas Betzwieser
Institut für Musikwissenschaft
D-60325 Frankfurt am Main

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is January 15, 2017; the final program will be published on the homepage of the Frankfurter Telemann Society no later than the beginning of March, 2017. For further information please see the bilingual invitation on the society's homepage (www.telemann.info).
