Chamber music

This research project studies the history and role of chamber music within the Antwerp bourgeois culture from 1848 until 1914. This formerly popular, but now largely ignored repertoire reveals a lot about the material, organizational, sociological and economical aspects of the music company during that period. This music-historical and artistic research is conducted through the life and work of two composers from Antwerp: Louis Gobbaerts and Maria Matthijssens.
