Round Table

Higher music education has long been characterised by a strong focus on Western canonical repertoires, mainly consisting of works enshrined in scores. Text-based musicological and music-theoretical approaches have been central to the interpretation, performance and consolidation of these repertoires. In recent decades, spurred by authors such as Jonathan Dunsby, Carolyn Abbate, Nicholas Cook, Daniel Leech-Wilkinson, and many others, openings have been created in classical music studies for research into music as performance, and for performers to play a crucial role in this as artistic researchers. Artistic research questions the ‘what’ and the ‘where’ of musical repertoires old and new: are they to be found in fixed musical products such as scores or recorded performances? Or, by analogy with oral music traditions, should repertoires be conceptualised as the ever-changing reservoir of embodied and aural knowledge that must be performed to stay alive? And what role can artistic researchers play in the disclosing and articulating of repertoires in contemporary music culture?

In this panel discussion, researchers from different disciplines discuss how artistic research can shed new light on the co-creative role of performers in the transmission and ongoing transformation of musical repertoires. In addition, they discuss how different conceptions of repertoire in musical disciplines such as early music, jazz, electro-acoustic music and ethnic music cultures, can lead to new and promising interdisciplinary exchanges.

In addition, they discuss how different conceptions of repertoire in musical fields such as early music, jazz, electro-acoustic music, and non-western music cultures, can lead to new and promising interdisciplinary exchanges.
