New Small Group Short Course Recorder Reset!
 
Tuesdays 1/17, 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/13, and 2/21 at 4 PM, CST
 
Do you feel stuck in your recorder playing? Are you wondering why your music-making feels tense and effortful? Would you like to play the recorder with more ease and joy? 
Join me for a live, six-week small group short course. We’ll be undertaking a New Year’s reset, re-examining fundamental aspects of our technique like posture, movement patterns, and breathing, and progressing through a series of exercises designed to get you playing with more freedom and confidence.
 
Cost: $133, which includes all six live sessions, weekly homework, and opportunities for between-session support for the duration of the course. 
 
To register, visit my website.

Each participant will receive a copy of our “Bach Family Album Tunes for Two” book, arranged for the instrument of their choice. 
 
Just as in all of the collections in the Tunes for Two series these books contain the same tunes in the same keys making it easy for you to play with a friend playing another instrument.
 
During the Workshop, we will read, play, and discuss various survival skills for these kinds of pieces. A treble clef version of the sheet music for the tunes being played will be displayed on the screen during the workshop. 
 
There is limited enrollment, and pre-registration is required. The fee for each “Bach Family Album for Two Workshop” is $25.

I’m excited to announce a great 90-minute Online Course on Italian 17th-Century ornamentation and its application to the musical pieces of the time: our Online Course on Sunday February 19! Even if you haven’t participated yet in the courses on Renaissance diminution, this course is a stand-alone course without any problem!

 

The course will provide an in-depth exploration of the ornamentation techniques used in 17th-century Italian music, with an emphasis on how to apply them to the musical pieces of the time. We will cover a variety of topics, including: 
 

 
  • the types of ornamentation, 
  • why and how they changed in relation to 16th-century diminutions, 
  • the genres of instrumental solo music with basso continuo (sonata, canzona) as well as the free genre of the Ricercata, 
  • and finally how to apply the “new” ornamentation to the musical pieces. 

 

I will offer guidance on how to best use the ornamentation techniques in practice and performance. 

Since 17th-century music can reach high levels of virtuosity, this time there will be two different levelsintermediate and advanced/professional. For each class, the participants choose a piece they’d like to work on or are already working on.

 

The intermediate class will focus on works by Riccio, Cima, Cecchino, Kapsberger, Frescobaldi, as well as one Ricercata by Bassano. These are pieces that can be performed from an intermediate level on. You will receive these materials on purchase so that you can practise at least one of the pieces before the class if you have never played 17th-century music. If you have, you can either work on one you already have in your repertoire or choose a new one.

 

The advanced/professional class will focus on virtuosic works by Castello, Fontana, Selma, Frescobaldi, Virgiliano, or any other piece the participants are working on. There is also a folder with several pieces to choose from for this class, sent to you on purchase.

Highland Park Recorder Society presents their Seminar Series in Early Music Performance 2022-2023

Click HERE for more info.

February 20, 2023 – Hidden Messages, Symbolism, Gematria and Numerology in the Music of Bach – Art of the Fugue, portions of Bach’s Cantata 4, St. Matthew’s Passion, Goldberg Variations. Alexei will lecture on the Numerology and Gematria that originated in the Kabbala, and the Theory of Affects that developed from the early Baroque to the time and music of Bach. He will discuss the Theory of Proportions, giving examples from math ( = 3.14), architecture, the construction of an arch and of musical canons. He will give, as an example of perfect proportions in music, the Goldberg Variations of Bach. We will examine Bach’s famous portrait of 1748 by Hartman, for its details related to Bach’s beliefs in the mystical equivalent between letters and numbers. We will play along on Bach’s Badinerie for SATB, and hear a pre-recorded or live performance by Alexei of Bach’s Chaconne for Violin solo.
