On 7 and 8 November, 2008, the Orgelpark in Amsterdam presented its Research Program, a series of internationally oriented scholarly projects. The first project is improvisation. This subject was chosen because research about improvisation in Western Music is relatively scarce. And i fit does gain the attention of musicologists, the important position of improvisation within international organ culture is usually neglected. A research team, in which researchers from various conservatoria and universities will collaborate, will study the phenomenon improvisation from music-historical, performance-practical and philosophical/esthetic angles.
