STIMU-SYMPOSIUM

THE HISTORICAL VIOLIN

Tijdens deze editie van het STIMU-symposium – het jaarlijkse treffen van academici, uitvoerders en bouwers – staat de revival van de historische viool centraal. Precies dertig jaar nadat de Stichting voor Muziekhistorische Uitvoeringspraktijk (STIMU) in 1989 een baanbrekende internationale vioolconferentie belegde, organiseren we een update, met aandacht voor de toekomst.

Symposiumcurator dr. Mimi Mitchell, net aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam gepromoveerd op deze materie, houdt drie dagen lang de vinger aan de pols van de hedendaagse vioolpraktijk geschoeid op historische leest. In combinatie met het symposium vinden diverse ochtendconcerten plaats, met een ereplaats voor innovatieve violisten van de jongste generatie, zoals de Nederlandse Eva Saladin.
