Jarvis conducts his way into the pages of music history 

Research by Dr Martin Jarvis has recently been cited by the new German Schott Edition of the Kreutzer Studies.

Research by a Charles Darwin University academic has just been cited in one of the world’s premier music publications.

Associate Professor of Music at Charles Darwin University (CDU) and former artistic director and conductor of the Darwin Symphony Orchestra, Martin Jarvis’ research into the music of the 18th Century composer Rudolph Kreutzer was recently credited in the new German Schott Edition of the Kreutzer Studies.

The citation refers to research Dr Jarvis undertook into Rudolph Kreutzer some 10 years ago.

Dr Jarvis said Schott’s editor had contacted him two years ago to verify something he had written and to say they wanted to use his research.

“To my surprise the new edition turned up unexpectedly on my desk. I had completely forgotten all about it,” he said.

“I’m definitely humbled by the citation. Schott is one of the world’s leading classical music publications.”

The Kreutzer Studies, now including Dr Jarvis’ research, will make their way into just about every violinist’s repertoire.
