Pierpaolo Polzonetti, an associate professor in Notre Dame’s Program of Liberal Studies (PLS) and Sacred Music at Notre Dame program, has won the H. Colin Slim Award for his essay, “Tartini and the Tongue of Saint Anthony.”
The award, presented by the American Musicological Society since 2005, honors a “musicological article of exceptional merit.”
Polzonetti’s research was published in the Journal of the American Musicological Society in summer 2014. It focused on the music of the composer and violin virtuoso Giuseppe Tartini performed at the Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua, a church in northern Italy built in the 13th and 14th centuries.
