May 17-18

An international symposium on music performance will be arranged in Stockholm on May 17-18, 2002. It is sponsored by the Scienfic Office at the Italian Embassy in Stockholm and the Italian Cultural Institute "C. M. Lerici".
The symposium has two aims. One is to elucidate the research on the
KTH Director Musices generative grammar of music performance that has been carried out in various places over the last years. This will be the theme of the first day. The other, covered during the second day, is to discuss the present scientific landscape of music performance research in general.

The evening of the first day, May 17, a concert is arranged at the Italian Cultural Institute "C. M. Lerici".
