Graduate Student (1st Year)
Matteo Sammartano is originally from Aix-en-Provence, France, and received a Master’s degree in Musicology from Aix-Marseille Université.
His former research project focused on the representation of the Night in Early music, with an emphasis on baroque opera’s “sleep scenes”. He worked as an intern at the Opera de Marseille library in 2018 and as an Assistant Editor at the Philharmonie de Paris in 2019.
His current interests are in baroque cello, French baroque music, and the study of animality and the use of animals as representation or embodiment in the construction of musical material.
