Program Description:

The department has a long-established international reputation for research in music history and musical analysis, covering music from the Middle Ages to the present day. We are particularly strong in opera studies, performance studies, music theory, historiography, 18th- and 19th-century music, the early 20th-century (including jazz) and composition. A new area of research being opened up by staff at King's is the study of music on record, especially historical recordings and their implications for performance. Joint PhD programme Exciting opportunities are now available to undertake a joint PhD programme with Hong Kong University bringing together expertise in composition and music theory, historical musicology, ethnomusicology and music cognition.
