During the research visit, Prof. Leitmeir managed to intensify existing collaborations with Dr. Pavlović as well as the Brenner-Archiv and also foster new partnerships. He said he is particularly grateful to Dr. Pavlović for facilitating explorative conversations with Dr. Franz Gratl (Curator of the Music Department at the Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum) and Prof. Kurt Scharr from the Department of History and European Ethnology at the University of Innsbruck.
Prof. Leitmeir's public guest lecture was titled ‘Mittelalter und Moderne, Zeichen und Klang: Rudolf von Ficker als Pionier praxisorientierter Forschung’ and created forum for encounters with other colleagues from the Department of Music Studies.
Unfortuntaley, the coordinators of BritInn weren't able to personally meet Prof. Leitmeir that week, because of a business trip outside of Innsbruck. Nevertheless, they were happy to hear that his visit was a great success and hope to welcome him again soon for future collaborations!
