Public Research Seminar: Professor Jamie Savan


Jamie Savan discusses some of his recent work editing, performing and recording music from the Venetian publishing houses of the early seventeenth century. This seminar will explore some of the ways in which the music of lesser-known figures, such as the 1616 Vespers of Amadio Freddi (c.1580-1643), can help us to understand the work of established ‘canon’ composers such as Claudio Monteverdi within a broader and richer context.

Jamie Savan is Professor of Performance-led Research at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Venice has proved an enduring inspiration for the different threads of his research, embracing applied organology, critical editing and historical performance practice. He is founder/director of the Gonzaga Band and a member of His Majestys Sagbuts & Cornetts, these ensembles forming both the testing ground and important outlets for his research in the form of live performances and recordings.
