Music migrations in the early modern age: the meeting of the European East, West and South

MusMig. Project leader: Prof. Vjera Katalinić (Zagrzeb), team leader: prof. Barbara Przybyszewska-Jarmińska

The investigation of music migrations will offer insight into musico-cultural encounters in spatial terms (European East, West and South), and in temporal terms (17th–18th centuries, i. e. Baroque and Classicism). The term “musicians” is to be understood broadly and here denotes not only composers, performers, writers on music issues, but also other professions related to music. It is expected to be proved that music migrations have considerably contributed to the dynamics and synergy of the European cultural scene at large, stimulating innovations, changes of styles and patterns of musical and social behaviour, and contributing to the cohesive forces in the common European cultural identity.

  • A fragment of a text ‘A Symphony of International Voices and Instruments in Poland’ by Barbara Przybyszewska-Jarmińska published in Academia 3 (47) 2015: 'Wandering music. The fascinating topic of musical migration in the 17th (and also 18th) century, the movement of musicians and transmission of repertoires across sociological, economic and political contexts and the attendant cultural impact, is the subject of an international project “Music migrations in the early modern age: the meeting of the European East, West and South, ” financed by a grant from HERA [Humanities in the European Research Area], obtained through the Cultural Encounters Project competition. I am delighted to be participating in it together with researchers from Croatia, Germany, Poland and Slovenia, as well as invited scholars from many other countries. The result of this collaboration, in addition to the new findings and interpretations published in articles and books and editions of scores previously known only to a few musicologists, will be a widely available database containing information about the musicians who travelled around the new Europe, participated in various “musical meetings” and in popularizing national music styles, also participated in the emergence of a universal style, which is still extant today.'
