The Maqam Conference of Cairo 1932
The Arab Music Conference, that took place 1932 at Cairo, was a most important event in the inter-cultural dialogue of Orient and Occident. At that time famous musicologists and composers of European and Arab countries met in a palace that belonged to the Institute of Oriental Music to discuss the development of music, its reproduction and perception, and to outline a generally applicable notation. The course of the conference and its results are the subject of this lecture.
