New edited volume on “The Chamber Musician in the Twenty-First Century“ by Prof. Doğantan-Dack


Professor Mine Doğantan-Dack publishes new edited volume on The Chamber Musician in the Twenty-First Century (2022, Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, Basel). The volume places the performer at its centre and introduces participatory, collaborative, and socially engaged musical practices as defining the emergent activity domain of the 21st-century chamber musician. 

The volume proceeds from a critical scrutiny of the cultural-historical baggage that the term “chamber music” has accumulated as repertoire and as activity over the last couple of centuries and moves through contributions that discuss institutional pedagogical issues and professional concerns, as well as the inner musical and social workings of chamber music ensembles. 

The volume finally turns to an exploration of the experiences, attitudes and values of amateur chamber musicians, an awareness of which is beneficial for the professional chamber musician in the 21st century. 

The contributions go beyond identifying and critically scrutinising the diverse challenges that the contemporary chamber musician faces; they also explore novel developmental and professional paths through which the musical and social practices of the 21st-century chamber musician can become more relevant for and more closely integrated with 21st-century lives.
