Prof. Fiona M. Palmer is speaking in Zagreb at the 13th International Musicological Conference of the Croatian Musicological Society where the theme is ‘The Great War 1914-1918 & Music: Compositional Strategies, Performing Practices, & Social Impacts’. Fiona’s paper, ‘Resisting Foreign Invasion: World War I and the Campaign for the British Conducting Profession’ sheds new light on how and why the British conducting profession sought to protect its work from ‘enemy-aliens’ on the homefront.
