More than 50 scholars from throughout Europe, Asia and Australia attended the inaugural meeting of the International Study Group for Musical Instruments of the International Musicological Society in Rome.
Co-organiser, Professor Margaret Kartomi, Coordinator of Research and Ethnomusicology in the Faculty of Arts said the event was held in the Museum of Musical Instruments of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
“The museum in Rome is truly a wonderful location and such a facility is very much cherished by not only those within academic circles but locals who appreciate music and its heritage,” Professor Kartomi said.
“Our inaugural meeting included the presentation of eight papers and extensive discussion about preservation techniques and the social impact of organological research among musicologists and curators of musical instrument museums, including the collection in Monash’s Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music.
“It was our first meeting and we are very much looking forward to preparing for our next get together,” Professor Kartomi said.
