You’ll get to know the music and history of German composers with fellow early music enthusiasts. We’ll puzzle through Schiller and Goethe’s refrain: “Germany, but where is it situated?” Program sessions focus on performance topics including articulation, ornamentation, improvisation, and rehearsal techniques. Other sessions will cover specialized topics like music of Martin Luther, crumhorn consort, and more. In five days, you’ll work towards an optional performance and play music by composers who lived and worked in modern-day Germany including Martin Agricola, Hans Leo Hassler, Michael Praetorius, Heinrich Schütz, and Samuel Scheidt. We welcome players of: recorders, early winds (cornetto, shawm, dulcian, sackbut, crumhorn), violins (with Baroque/Renaissance bow), viols, lutes, Renaissance harp, harpsichord, and percussion. There will be some opportunities for vocalists as well. Participants must have the ability to read music. If you are an instrumentalist, bring your own instrument(s). Instrumentalists must have proficiency on at least one period instrument. The course will be held at A=440. Some instruments are available to borrow during the workshop with advanced communication with the instructor. Printed music will be provided.
