(UK) Migrating from Descant to Treble Recorder Course at Benslow (2011 June 24-26)

Contributed by VickyCarlton on May 21, 2011

Tutored by: Rae Strong

Most people learn to play recorders pitched in C - usually the descant - but other members of the family, the treble, bass and tiny sopranino recorder, are pitched in F. Rae Strong’s accessible course will help you make the transition and have fun while you’re doing it. It will cover everything from basic note learning to ensemble playing, so that you’ll emerge from your stay at Benslow an altogether more versatile player.

Contributed by Admin on May 20, 2011
Qualities of motion and emotion in song come from poetic images, melody, harmony, and voice leading, but they also come from rhythm and meter-the flow and articulation of words and music in time. This book explores rhythm and meter in the nineteenth-century German Lied, including songs for voice and piano by Fanny Hensel nee Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, and Hugo Wolf.

Visual Acuity and the Arts of Communication in Early Modern Germany

The sixth international conference sponsored by FNI will address visual culture in early modern Germany. Artists, writers, preachers, musicians, and performers, as well as those whom they may represent, need audiences. In a society saturated with images, visualization, whether literal or imaginative, becomes a dynamic tool for communication. In early print culture writers, artists, and publishers experimented with how to combine visual images with text in order to make their messages more effective. Authors, such as Hans Sachs, often engaged their audiences through verbal pictures, such as vivid descriptions of settings and people. During the Early Modern period religious propagandists, political writers, satirists, cartographers, the scientific community, and others experimented with new uses of visual images. Practitioners of many disciplines adopted visual criteria for testing truth claims, investigating pressing problems, and representing knowledge.
