Historical Keyboard Society of North America – 2023 Conference

17 mayo, 2023 @ 8:00 - 20 mayo, 2023 @ 17:00

Lecture recital:
With this lecture-recital, I am aiming to shed light to the importance of Iberian and Latin American women from varied social spheres who collected and/or transcribed music in the eighteenth century, providing a source for understanding the cultural transfer occurred between the two continents. While mostly Christian religious music has been preserved and studied, perhaps because for most of the colonial period in Latin America formal musical interactions between colonizers and colonized occurred in one direction only, in the late years of the eighteenth century, when both continents were foreseeing the end of an old regime, secular music education and domestic music making started to spread along with enthusiasm for Italian music and the new fortepiano.
I will present the general historical and musical context to then introduce the following non-religious sources, containing keyboard works written for the fortepiano by Iberian and Latin American composers: the library of the Portuguese-Spanish Queen Maria Barbara, a manuscript owned by a Chilean black woman slave known as “Libro Sesto de Maria Antonia Palacios”; a compilation named “Quaderno Mayner”, for the use of Sra. Maria Guadalupe Mayner from Mexico of unknown origin, and the first printed works from Iberian and Latin American composers that circulated in both continents, including some fortepiano methods. I would like to use the fortepiano available.
