Emma-Jane Willan at Al-Quds University

A prize-winning graduate of both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, Emma-Jane Willan pursues a range of interests within the Western Classical tradition which include analysis, music history and performance. Her research has focused primarily on the early chamber music of Benjamin Britten, but has also extended to issues concerning musical recording, postmodern ways of listening, various forms of musical notation and the analytical techniques of Hans Keller. She is an accomplished oboist, having studied at the Royal College of Music in London and performed widely across Europe. In addition, Emma has experience working for the BBC’s Classical Music unit and for several international festivals.

She will assist at the music department of Al-Quds University in Abu Dis and support the team with the development of the new Al-Quds University College of Music in Jerusalem.
