This collection of some fifteen thousand items (including musical manuscripts, facsimiles, historical and modern editions), dedicated to music from the 17th/18th centuries, has been assembled over fifty years by a single artist, a world-renowned performer of baroque music, and will be entrusted to the Orpheus Institute. The Research Fellow will design, plan, coordinate and lead innovative projects exploring the potential of this unique collection as a research instrument for musical practice.
