Louise Dyer and Editions de l’Oiseau-Lyre: The Establishment of a Music Press
Baillieu Library and
Melbourne Conservatorium of Music
This symposium, hosted by the University Library and the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, is expected to cover the Couperin complete edition (12 vols.; marking the 350th centenary of his birth) and other print publishing of the early years; the 78 rpm sound recordings; the press’s support in the 1930s of contemporary composers, especially French and Australian; and Louise Dyer and the visual arts.
The symposium will be joined by keynote speaker Catherine Massip, and concerts are planned to complement the symposium.
