Event description

Description

This series of colloquia perpetuates the legacy and cultural impact of Melburnian music patron and publisher Louise Hanson-Dyer (1884–1962), founder of Éditions de l’Oiseau-Lyre, by bringing cutting-edge issues in music research to a public forum for discussion and debate.

Packet-boats and Parcels: J. S. Cousser and the Practicalities of Musical Exchange in Early Modern Europe

The decision of successful music director and composer Johann Sigismund Cousser to settle in Dublin in 1707 has left many scholars perplexed. Yet far from being an act of apparent self-exile, evidence uncovered in Cousser’s commonplace book suggests that he continued to maintain close connections with friends and colleagues not only in England, but also further afield in Continental Europe through the means of both correspondence and travel. Through an exploration of this fascinating primary source, this presentation calls for a reassessment of the extent to which music was transferred from one country to another in the early modern era.

Samantha Owens FAHA is Associate Professor of Musicology at Victoria University of Wellington. Her publications include the books Johann Sigismund Kusser, Adonis (A-R Editions, 2009) and Music at German Courts, 1715–60, co-edited with Janice B. Stockigt and Barbara M. Reul (Boydell Press, 2011). This October her monograph The Well-Travelled Musician: John Sigismond Cousser and Musical Exchange in Baroque Europe will be published by Boydell Press.
