October 24, 2017

Last week, the conference En ocasión de María del Carmen: Enrique Granados y su época was held at the University of Murcia in Spain, concluding our Granados Celebration programming.

Foundation for Iberian Music director and Granados Celebration co-chair Antoni Pizà was a member of the advisory committee for En ocasión de María del Carmen and several of the Foundation’s past and present colleagues participated in the conference.

Miriam Perandones (Universidad de Oviedo), who has has been a guest researcher at the Foundation and was a member of the steering committee for the Granados Celebration, presented one of the keynote addresses, “El teatro lírico español o españolizante en la década de los 10 en EEUU: la ciudad de Nueva York. ” She was also on the conference’s advisory committee.

Anna Tonna (Hispanic Society of America & Library), who is a frequent collaborator with the Foundation and served on the Granados Celebration steering committee, presented a paper, called,”‘¿Desnuda o vestida?’: Restoring context for a performance practice that recuperates Fernando Periquet’s recited text ‘La maja desnuda’ within Enrique Granados’ song ‘La  maja de Goya’ from the Doce Tonadillas al estilo antiguo.”

Congratulations to the committees and to our colleagues on an excellent conference, and our gratitude to all of our friends and collaborators who helped us to celebrate Granados’s centenary.
