Description: This conference on Music and Talent includes a scientific workshop with priority to the Academic community (registration in advance is preferred) and a free concert-conference.

The role of natural endowment and hard work in musical performance is one of the oldest and most contentious issue in both science and society. Up to the 20th century, innate talent was associated to musicianship. Over the last century, the prevalent view has been that intensive practice is key. The goal of this workshop is to examine whether music practice alone can account for individual differences in musical abilities or if we should also acknowledge the importance of innate predispositions.

The conference includes academic presentations by leading experts in the fields of music, child psychology and neuroscience, round table discussions and a public concert-conference.
