Research in Music
Staff research in music takes place in the fields of musicology and composition. In musicology, we are principally interested in the relationships between musical texts and their contexts, within a repertoire covering the late nineteenth century to the present. Analysis is the methodological foundation of this work, which issues principally in the areas of Modernist Aesthetics and Musicology and, a more recent addition, Popular Music and Film Studies. In composition, we are principally interested in developments in contemporary concert music, and have recently begun to accept students researching performance, as described in Composition and Performance.
Further details on individual research activities can be found on the staff pages.
