The music of Frederick Delius presents fascinating challenges of interpretation, documentation, performance, and analysis. In conjunction with their current AHRC award, ‘Delius, Modernism and the Sound of Place’, Prof. Daniel Grimley and Dr Joanna Bullivant lead a symposium on Delius’s music, focusing on new developments in Delius scholarship and future directions in research. It will also celebrate the launch of the online Delius Catalogue of Works, an interactive resource created in the course of the project.

Proposals for 20-minute presentations from scholars at any stage of their career are now warmly invited. Topics may include, but are not limited to: Delius and opera; issues of editing and performance; Delius and his contemporaries; musical modernism; cosmopolitanism, nationalism and ethnicity in relation to Delius’s works.

The symposium is timed to follow the Biennial Conference on 19th Century Music at Oxford earlier in the week, for those wishing to attend both events. Confirmed speakers include Prof Jeremy Dibble (University of Durham) and Dr Sarah Collins (University of New South Wales). Abstracts (200 words) should be sent to joanna.bullivant@music.ox.ac.uk by 5pm BST on Monday 31 May.
