Music and diplomacy are deeply interrelated. The volume “Music and diplomacy from the Early Modern Era to the present” deals with all the aspects of diplomacy which are connected to music, from the thoretical, philosophic or practical prespectives. Concepts, terminology, practices and institutions of the music shape the world of diplomacy. For instance, “to act in concert”, “improvisation” are terms which remind us both the world of the music and the world of diplomacy. In addition, music has always contributed to promote intercultural exchange and to build positive international relations. Rebeka Harendt, Mark Ferraguto and Damien Mahiet gathered sixteen international scholars with different backgrounds to discuss all these aspects.
