Dublin Guitar Symposium – Back to the Future

TU Dublin, Friday 22nd February - Saturday 23rd February 2019

Expanding on the success of the inaugural Dublin Guitar Symposium, this event will gather some of the most distinguished and highly regarded scholars and musicians of the classical guitar.

Over the past twenty years or so, an explosion in classical guitar research has been gradually redressing the balance for what James Tyler described as a ‘neglected' instrument. It is now understood that musical practices, and to some extent the study of musical practices, of the classical guitar are technically, aesthetically and culturally mediated by the instrument. The theme of the Dublin Guitar Symposium examines this interface across a broad range of musical activities and perspectives.

This conference presents the most important recent trends in classical guitar research broadly divided into two areas: contemporary and historical perspectives. The first broaches issues such as performance studies, organology and the compositional process; the second examines such critical areas as repertoire stylism, improvisation and performance practice, and so forth.

The Irish Potato Famine

Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Floor 2.

The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word 'Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the 'Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. Some historians prefer to use the name 'Great Hunger' to describe this period of ma
