Ralph Dudgeon, Performing Arts Department, will deliver a paper, “The Privilege of Joseph Riedl and Joseph Kail: 1 November 1823,” at the Library of Congress as part of the 39th annual meeting of the American Musical Instrument Society being held May 26-29 in Washington, D.C. The paper was developed by Dudgeon’s research team at the Musikinstrumentenmuseum, Schloss Kremsegg in Upper Austria and discusses a drawing for an early brass instrument valve that has not been previously examined by scholars.
