Just a reminder of the Tafelmusik Winter Institute (TWI) in January 2017. (ed.)

" ... our fifth annual Tafelmusik Winter Institute, to be held in Toronto January 5–11, 2017. We will once again welcome a select group of period players to join us for an intensive week of specialized orchestral study.

This year we will focus on the string orchestra in baroque Italy, exploring music written in Rome, Bologna, Naples, and Venice 1650-1750, by composers such as Caldara, Corelli, Cazzati, Locatelli, Torelli, Scarlatti, Durante, Leo, and Vivaldi.  ...

The week will include orchestra rehearsals, sectionals, seminars, masterclasses, informal reading sessions, and a final public concert. Leadership of sections will be shared amongst the players. We will include a sampling of the rich Italian solo concerto repertoire, featuring a TWI participant (or participants)."
