The Higini Anglès Dissertation Award
The Foundation for Iberian Music, a project of the Barry S. Brook Center for Music Research and Documentation of The Graduate Center, The City University of New York, is pleased to announce the establishment of the Higini Anglès Dissertation Award.
Named after the eminent Catalan musicologist Higini Anglès (1888-1969), this prize is awarded to a student of the music programs of The CUNY Graduate Center who has completed a dissertation on a subject that is in line with the mission of the Foundation for Iberian Music, namely:
To promote and disseminate the classical and popular traditions of Iberian music, including those rooted in the Mediterranean, Latin American, and Caribbean cultures.
The director of the Foundation for Iberian Music, in consultation with the director of the Barry S. Brook Center for Music Research and members of the faculty of The Graduate Center’s Music Programs, determines eligible dissertations and selects award recipients.
The 2006 Higini Anglès Dissertation Award has been granted to Mauricio Molina for his “Frame Drums in the Medieval Iberian Peninsula.”
