  • Conference Call

The event will take place March 20 – 21, 2014 at the Orff Cen­ter in Munich, Ger­many.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Cipri­ano de Rore (1516−1565) was one of the most impor­tant com­posers of the Renais­sance. Part of the great Franco-​Flemish migra­tion of com­posers and chapel­mas­ters to Italy in the fif­teenth and six­teenth cen­turies, he worked in Venice, Fer­rara and Parma, in the ser­vice of dukes and doges. He com­posed in all of the sig­nif­i­cant vocal gen­res of the art music of his time — madri­gals, masses, motets, chan­sons. But it was espe­cially in the realm of Ital­ian sec­u­lar music that he would make an endur­ing con­tri­bu­tion. After his death, he soon acquired mythic sta­tus, reg­u­larly described by writ­ers as “il divino Cipri­ano.” No less a com­poser than Clau­dio Mon­teverdi would rec­og­nize his orig­i­nal­ity and significance.

    It is arguable that no other such piv­otal fig­ure in music his­tory has received so lit­tle schol­arly atten­tion. The time is ripe to take stock of the tasks that lie ahead. This inter­na­tional con­fer­ence will bring together schol­ars who will dis­cuss de Rore and his music from a vari­ety of perspectives.

    There will be an exhi­bi­tion at the Bavar­ian State Library.
