Early modern music and art were both often shaped by transcultural exchanges and transnational encounters across borders. Patrons, composers, theoreticians, musicians and artists promoted such exchanges, transforming the artistic and musical landscape of Europe into a complex transcultural form. Papers might consider how artists, musicians, composers, patrons, musical works, theatrical spectacles, art works and performance practices crossed borders and cultures, why they did so, and with what effects, whether aesthetic, generic, dramatic, political or social. Papers might explore the significance of national and international artistic traditions, the differing kinds of influences, intertextualities, intercultural dialogues and transcultural performance practices or the links between music and art and local or international politics.
