Professor Page Plenary Talk on Performance, Imagination and the Early-Romantic Guitar

imgres-1Professor Christopher Page will be a keynote speaker at a conference on Performing Knowledge being held at Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge on April 25-26, 2016. Bringing together performing musicians engaging in practice-led research, ethnographers of Western art music, and psychologists specialising in tacit knowledge research, this two-day conference explores performers’ interpretative processes and their uses of tacit knowledge (also called implicit, procedural, or embodied knowledge) in understanding the explicit knowledge presented in historical documents, analyses, and performance treatises. Professor Page will be delivering a paper on ‘Performance, Imagination and the Early-Romantic Guitar’.
