This workshop focuses on the relationship between freedom and pulse: Senza battuta /
Con la battuta della mano / la battuta del cuore
. Intended for singers and continuo players
(harpsichord, theorbo, harp) with a repertoire of early monody: Caccini, Monteverdi, Peri,
Carissimi). Possibly also some vocal works of the late renaissance (Dowland), and excerpts from
operas (Cavalli, etc.
). Teaching form:
- One introductory lesson in plenum with everybody: Practical work with students selected
by the lecturer based on their experience and the repertoire they propose (e. g., Monteverdi:
Lamento d’Arianna, Caccini: Amarilli).
- One additional lesson per ensemble with diverse pieces.
To get most out of the lessons, we encourage you to bring your duo partner. If you come alone, please
contact the organisers, we will try to match you up with someone. It is essential that you know your
repertoire well, such that you can concentrate on “freedom without anarchy”.
2 lessons 60 minutes each — 1400 Kč V4 price, 2000 Kč full price. For Recitar cantando, we offer a reduction if you participate as ensemble (singer + accompanist). Please contact us for a concrete offer.
