International festival of the lute as part of the BASEL LUTE DAYS
September 14th - 18th, 2022

on the Campus of the Basel Music Academy


The German Lute Society (DLG), in collaboration with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis/FHNW, is pleased to announce the BASEL LUTE DAYS, which will take place from September 14th - 18th, 2022 on the Campus of the Basel Music Academy.

The Basel Lute Days, under the general direction of Peter Croton, will bring together performers, researchers, teachers and students, and will consist of the following:
The International Musicological Society Study Group Meeting (September 14th). Under the direction of John Griffiths, this meeting, “Tablature in Western Music”, will present research papers regarding lute and keyboard tablature.

The 2nd International Conference on Lute Study in Higher Education (September 16th - 18th), hosted and supported by the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. This conference, building on the 2019 Conference in Bremen, will continue to explore diverse subjects of interest to lute teachers, students and performers through presentations and discussions. Talks will include subjects such as historical performance practice, basso continuo, historical instrument types, Alexander Technique, plectrum lute, ornamentation, and general early music pedagogy in the 21st century. There will be panel discussions, including “Learning the lute from the student’s perspective”.

The German Lute Society International Lute Festival (September 16th - 18th). This festival will include lectures, gala concerts and master classes (with the conference speakers), and an exhibition of music and instruments. The presentations will cover subjects such as original instruments and the lute in the 20th century (research, teaching, lute building, interpretation and technique) including the role that Basel has played in this development. We are also inviting representatives from Lute Societies around the world to participate in a round-table discussion on September 18th.

Festival of the Lute in Lübeck
14th – 18th June 2019

Our annual Lute Festival has taken place in collaboration with ‘Lübecker Lautenlust’. The particular location together with the very high-quality programme has made a visit particularly worthwhile! Concerts, lectures, the exhibition (this time only on the Saturday), the members’ general meeting and the sociable get-together have been on the programme as always. Unlike most of the previous DLG Festivals, that have been based purely on voluntary collaborations, the artists at Lübeck have been paid appropriate fees. These have been financed by cultural support and entrance payments. It was possible for members of the Lute Society to apply for a Festival pass at a reduced price.
