How did you enjoy the first international and multidisciplinary colloquium of the European Music Centre, which brought together 44,838 connections from 77 countries and 5 continents (when will Antarctica be included?); or were you unable to attend? Anyway, do not miss the follow-up, which promises to be just as exciting and original, and in some respects pioneering. The CEM is pleased to invite you to the international and multidisciplinary colloquium "De la musique avant toute chose II / Music before all else II" which will be held virtually on Friday 4 June 2021 from 2.30 to 5.30 pm, via Zoom and streaming on YouTube.
Overcoming academic boundaries, the CEM's second Colloquium, in French and English, gathers presentations by four specialists Nicolas DUFETEL, a musicologist concentrating on the Romantic period, Barbara TILLMANN, researcher in cognitive sciences, Olivier TINLAND, a philosopher focusing on Nietzsche, and Stefan KOELSCH, a neuroscientist, all of whom are either music lovers or musicians, and who will explore, according to their own approaches, music as primary, central and original phenomenon.
The Colloquium will be opened by Shani DILUKA, internationally renowned concert pianist, followed by a speech by Jorge CHAMINÉ, baritone and highly committed musician, president and founder of the CEM.
At the end of the Colloquium, an expert from the cultural world, Adrian Mohr, will present the results of a recent study on "post COVID-19 cultural practice and Philippe GIMET, President of OPEREL, will develop the topic "Towards a new European and cultural dynamic in the territories". Last but not least, Carlos MOEDAS, European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science (2014-2019), former minister, candidate for the Lisbon City Council will conclude this 2nd CEM colloquium.
