Venetian Influences—France, Germany, Italy

Venice was a leading center for the dramatic musical developments at the turn of the 17th century. Come and explore its stylistic influence on vocal and instrumental writing and the contrasts in National styles that later emerged. You will perform and listen to music from the French masters (double-reeds and viols), the Venetian school (particularly on sackbut and cornetto), German arias, and composers like Vivaldi, Monteverdi, Bach, and Schütz. Daily master classes and coached chamber ensembles offer each participant the opportunity to hone skills and to explore new modes of expression in prepared pieces and with others. Elective classes include Orchestra, Chorus, Oboe Band, Performance Practice in Action, and Continuo. Faculty performances, lecture-demonstrations, and a Concerto Evening round out the week. Our workshop provides a friendly and supportive atmosphere for both the dedicated amateur and the professional musician.
