Call for Contributors: A Companion to Malcolm Arnold
Proposals are invited for A Companion to Malcolm Arnold, a collection of musicological, music-theoretical and aesthetic essays on the British composer Sir Malcolm Arnold (1921-2006). The book is scheduled to be published towards the end of 2008.
We invite contributions from academics and researchers which address any aspects of his oeuvre, any aesthetic implications of his compositional process, his perceptions in Britain and overseas, or his particular position as a composer of ‘light’ and ‘serious music’ in the UK. As a composer currently represented only as a ‘side-issue’ in academic circles, the companion aims to stimulate discussion on the value of his symphonic and concertante music, to explore possible influential lines of Arnold and his influence on current composers, and to reposition him within the context of 20th contemporary new music.
Please send your 200-300 word proposals for papers of between 6000 and 8000 words plus a short CV to Dr. Raphael D. Thoene, University of Music and Drama Hannover (Germany): Raphael.Thoene@t-online.de by 1st April 2008.
Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by 21st April 2008 of the status of their proposals, and will receive author and style notes shortly thereafter. Full papers are expected to be submitted by July 31st, 2008.
