PEK1720: major update

9 July 2018

Through the kindness of our colleague, Prof. Patrizio Barbieri, many new details about PEK1720 have recently come to light. This information is contained in the article, “Musical Instruments, Gut Strings, Musicians and the Corelli Sonatas at the Chinese Imperial Court: The Gifts of Clement XI (1700-1720)”. Informazione Organistica, XXVIII/2 (December 2016), pp. 205-257.

This article also contains some additional interesting information which will be noted in future News posts. The entire volume is dedicated to the memory of the late Prof. Peter Williams, with whom Prof. Urrows studied at Edinburgh University in 1979-80.
