THE END OF EARLY MUSIC: POSTPONED
The End of Early music is at the same time the title of the book published by Bruce Haynes in 2007, the title of a symposium organized in ZAMUS (Köln) that was conceived as a follow-up on the book’s themes, and a deliberately controversial proposed approach to today’s Early music practice. In this episode, we gathered a few of the original guests of this symposium, and whom you may still hear on this topic when it can finally take place in 2021.
READ THE BOOK: FROM THE LIBRARY SHELF TO THE CONCERT HALL
Early Music is all about how we deal with our heritage. After an episode where we followed the path that goes from the music instruments kept in museums collections to the stage and live performance, let’s hear how the precious written sources kept in our libraries can be a tool and an inspiration for the artists. Here is the story of another love triangle, between the library curators, the musicologists, and the performers themselves.
OFF THE RECORD: THE STORY BEHIND YOUR EARLY MUSIC CDS
CD recording has undergone major changes in the last few years, due, obviously, to the arrival of digital opportunities for distribution, and new habits for the listeners and CD buyers.

And, more importantly, what happens in the recording studio? Here is an insight into the minds of label managers, performers and sound engineers...
BORN UNDER CHARLEMAGNE: HOW EUROPE MAKES EARLY MUSIC
Which came first, Early Music or Europe? Whenever you choose a start date for Early Music, you will probably pick a period during which the idea of a common European culture was present. The music that marks us always carries a sense of belonging to a broader community, which made it relevant to so many people across the area. But it also gives a sense of diversity, with local traditions melting into more general movements and adding to more than a thousand years of shared common heritage. Skip to 2020 and see how today’s European Union reflects this immense cultural wealth, and what tools support Early Music producers and performers today in the European Union!
