Emilfork’s research focuses in two areas: Latin-American contemporary repertoire for classical guitar, and repertory for plucked instruments from the sixteenth and seventeenth century.
His dissertation explores the tension between the different perspective of Latin-American music focused in the guitar repertoire. The research examines different tendencies, influences and aesthetic visions that may be involved in the compositional and reception processes. It also highlights and describes possible sociological and political tensions involved in the definition of what is Latin-American Music. Specifically, Emilfork concentrates his interest in four twentieth century Sonatas for the instrument composed by Roberto Sierra, Guido Santórsola, Carlos Guastavino, and Ronaldo Miranda.
Emilfork has presented his research at the American Musicological Society Meeting in Vancouver, Canada, 2016. Abstract
