Maria Matthijssens and Louis Gobbaerts: the history and role of salon music in Antwerp's bourgeois culture (1848-1914).
This research project explores the history and role of salon music within Antwerp's bourgeois culture during the period 1848-1914. This once popular, but now largely neglected repertoire reveals a lot about the material, organisational, sociological and economic aspects of the music industry around that time. This music-historical and artistic research is carried out through the life and works of two Antwerp composers: Louis Gobbaerts and Maria Matthijssens.
