Workshops/Festivals 2016: (DE) Course on Basso Continuo (Universität der Künste, Berlin, 10-11 Feb 2016)

Contributed by admin on Jan 31, 2016

THE ACCOMPANIMENT OF RECITATIVE AND ARIA in the 17th & 18th CENTURIES will be one of the main subjects of this year’s course on basso continuo at the Universität der Künste in Berlin (February 10 and 11). We will discuss and try ...

various styles of arpeggio, when or where acciaccature may be added, whether bass notes/chords have to be long or short, and the difference between church and opera recitative. Additional subjects will include ‘descriptive’ or ‘prescriptive’ continuo figuring; the improvisation of ‘bridges’ between movements and playing from unfigured basses.
