Conclusions du Study group session "European Musicians in Venice, Rome and Naples 1650-1750: Music, cultural exchanges and identities of the nations"

Abstract : This section aims at exploring the role and importance of Venice, Rome, and Naples between 1650 and 1750 as places of musical interest, which had a great impact on the formation of European musicians who travelled through Europe in the early modern period. It will focus on processes of musical and cultural exchanges within the musical life of these three cities in order to reexamine contemporary definitions of national styles as well as national research traditions dedicated to musical genres and their reception. The section will be based on two approaches: First, the cultural, social, and artistic introduction of foreign musicians in Venice, Rome and Naples will be examined on a microhistorical level to identify aspects of musical practice, knowledge, professionality, and reception which were required by local patrons and institutions. Second, macrohistorical aspects such as radiation but also strategies of cultural promotion of the three cities will be analysed, taking into account both the European musicians' motivations of an Italian journey and the migration flow of musicians of the Italian peninsula. Finally, we will compare the results of individual case studies to similar processes of migration and musical exchange in other European places to identify triangle transfers and reevaluate the changing importance of the musical life on the Italian peninsula for the musicians' professionalization, the dynamics of a European sociability, and the increasing politically symbolic character of music around 1700.
