Greta Golick Award Winner for 2024

The Bibliographical Society of Canada (BSC) is pleased to announce that Annika Fabbi has been awarded the Greta Golick award.

Musicologist, pianist, and harpsichordist Annika Fabbi is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Music at the University of Ottawa. Her research explores the publication history of music, focusing on the evolution of editorial practices, and arguing the existence of a symbiotic relationship between music editors and performers.

The Awards Committee Committee was particularly impressed with Annika’s abstract “‘What’s in a Score?’: Exploring the Publication History of J. S. Bach’s Capriccio, BWV 992,” which seeks to explore the influence editorial practices have on musicians, and the implications of these findings for twenty-first-century performers of Baroque music.

Annika will be invited to publish a revised, article-length version of her Conference paper in the Papers of the Bibliographical Society of Canada, subject to peer review. The prize also includes a grant of $250 to be used to help the recipient attend the annual Conference or to meet costs associated with research.

The Greta Golick Award has been given annually since 2022 to recognize and support the education of graduate students and early career researchers by facilitating their participation in the Society’s annual Conference. The award is named in honour of Dr. Greta Golick (1956–2018), whose scholarship and teaching are remembered with admiration and gratitude. Inaugurated with a residual sum given to BSC-SbC by the Canadian Association for the Study of Book Culture (CASBC) at its dissolution, the award fund is augmented by generous donations in Dr. Golick’s memory.
