Contributed by Admin on Feb 05, 2012
“This year's focus is on composers active in 17th- and 18th-century Naples, with a special focus on Nicola Porpora's first opera "L’Agrippina" of 1708.  The city's Spanish rulers founded music schools on the premises of four monasteries which housed Europe's finest musicians and composers. In our master classes, chamber music, orchestral and dance sessions, we will deal with all aspects of interpretation of the music of Scarlatti, Cimarosa, Porpora, Pergolesi and their contemporaries.

(DE) La Danza München: Seminar "Con Gratia e Decoro" (20-22 apr 2012)

Contributed by Admin on Feb 02, 2012

Location: Pension Schreiber, Benediktbeuern DE

“Grace (gratia) and decency, dignity (Decoro), in previous centuries were the most important virtues of the dance of courtly society. The aristocratic dance had always the function of representation; the representation of oneself in the eyes of the spectators who were themselves connoisseurs and experts of the matter. The movement style that sprang from it is characterized by highly varied steps, extreme subtlety and nuance. The sensation is, so to speak, in detail.

Johann Rosenmüller, though born in Germany, worked in Venice as one of the successors of Monteverdi. His vespers music is equally glorious to Monteverdi's own on a grand scale, and his smaller scale music displays some of the finest instrumental virtuosity and melodic fluidity of the 17th century. Pre-concert lecture (included in ticket price) and other related events (Chant Camp with Susan Hellauer of Anonymous 4) will be announced at a later date.”

Contributed by Admin on Jan 23, 2012

Le Clavecin en fête, a spring festival held in some of the most beautiful venues in Walloon Brabant and in Brussels, is celebrating its 22nd anniversary, this year. 

The traditional venue of these concerts is the beautiful romanesque church of Tourinnes-la-Grosse, from which the festival derives its name. But the little church of Upigny provides an alternative venue when the intimate character of the works on the program requires one.

In the wake of the festival, there are also "The Harpsichord on Thursdays" and the "Espace Mikrokosmos", whose programs are a perfect foil for those of "The Harpsichord at Tourinnes".
   


(AT) 36th Innsbruck Festival of Early Music (8-26 Aug 2012)

Contributed by Admin on Jan 22, 2012
“In 2012, Alessandro De Marchi, Artistic director of the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music, focuses on the influence that popular, traditional music of the baroque period had on composed music of that time. The programme is a journey through the great world of early music to various folk-music sources and to artistically impressive regions of sound – all across Europe as well as to Latin America and China. Rather exotic beauties also populate the opera stage: the passionate Neapolitan Stellidaura in an opera by Provenzale, the beautiful Helena in Bontempi’s “Il Paride” and the power­hungry Poppea in Monteverdi’s masterpiece.”
