Conference: Music Criticism 1950-2000 (Barcelona) There is an upcoming conference that may be of interest to our friends and colleagues in Spain. Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini is holding a conference on Music Criticism since 1950. The conference is October 9–11 at the Institut d’Estudis Catalans. This is a multi-lingual conference and selected papers will be published, following the conference. It is the last in a series of conferences exploring music criticism. Last year’s conference explored criticism from 1900 to 1950, and the previous year kicked off the series with criticism in the 19th century. The Graduate Center community is being well represented at the conference. Current musicology student Erix Taxier will be presenting, along with faculty member Chadwick Jenkins and alumnus Emilio Ros-Fábregas, who is representing CSIC/Societat Catalana de Musicologia.
