Nick Baragwanath, Associate Professor in the Department of Music, has won the Marjorie Weston Emerson Award 2014 for a chapter on Mozart’s early sonatas in Harlow, M (ed), Mozart’s Chamber Music [CUP, 2012]. In the chapter, he argued that Mozart’s first published scores represent only a commoditised, simplified version of the original improvised performances, which relied on forgotten Italian methods.
The prize is awarded annually by the Mozart Society of America. This year, there were more than 60 nominated publications.
Nick was presented the award at the meeting of the American Musicological Society in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on 7 November.
