The American Institute for Verdi Studies (AIVS) is accepting nominations for the 2015 Martin Chusid Award for Verdi Studies. This biannual award honors the noted Verdi, Schubert, and Mozart scholar, Martin Chusid (1925-2013), who was Professor Emeritus of Music at New York University and the AIVS's Founding Director.

Any book, book chapter, article, or scholarly music edition in the field of Verdi studies, written in English, French, German, or Italian by a scholar in the early stages of his or her career (normally no more than ten years beyond awarding of the terminal degree) is eligible for nomination. The 2015 award considers works published in 2013 or 2014. The winner will receive a cash prize.

Nominations, including self-nominations, should be submitted electronically to [email protected]. Please include the name of the author, the title of the work, and (for articles) the title and date of the journal, or (for books and music editions) the publisher and year of publication. The judging committee may also ask the nominee to supply a copy of the work, which will be returned if postage is included.

The deadline for nominations is 15 April 2015.
