CFP: Arvo Pärt StudiesIn honor of Arvo Pärt’s 75th birthday in 2010, abstracts are invited for possible inclusion in a collection being considered for publication by a major international publisher and for presentation at a symposium on the composer to be held in Boston, MA in 2010 (date tba).
Abstracts of around 250 words on any subject related to Pärt and his music will be considered. Possible topics include:
. Pre-tintinnabula works
. Analytical studies of individual works or groups or work
. Pärt and twenty-first century spirituality
. Comparative studies (for example, different settings of the Passion with Pärt’s Passio)
. Pärt and the new minimalists (for example, Tavener and Górecki)
. Pärt and popular culture
. Pärt’s choral music
. Pärt’s film music
. Analyses (especially those that define new methodologies for analyzing the tintinnabula works)
. Performance practice
. Reception history
The initial deadline for abstracts is Friday 1 August 2008, though interest and questions may be addressed to the editor, Andrew Shenton, at any time.
Abstracts should be emailed as Word attachments and should include the author’s institutional affiliation (if any) and contact information. Please note that if accepted, the final essay of around 8,000 words will need to be submitted by early 2009. All contributions must be in English.
