Forqueray & the art of arranging
:   Aline Zylberajch (FR)
Workshop for players of harpsichord and viola da gamba. In 1747 (?), Jean-Baptiste Forqueray published 32 compositions by his late father, Antoine Forqueray, both in the original version for viol and in his own arrangements for the harpsichord. Each of the two editions are highly idiomatic for the specific instruments. The participants in this workshop will play this literature together, investigating how their interpretations influence and cross-fertilize each other.

Players (also of other instruments) who are working with similar historical arrangements are welcome to contact us; perhaps we can coordinate other classes with a similar aim.

Literature: Pieces de Viole Composées par Mr. Forqueray La Pere, Mises en Pieces de Clavecin par Mr. Forqueray Le Fils (s. l., s. d.); Pieces de Viole avec la Basse Continuë, Composées par Mr. Forqueray Le Pere, Ordinaire de la Musique de la Chambre du Roi (s. l., s. d.)
