For several years Leopoldo Perez has administered a series of harpsichord concerts and classes ­ sometimes more than a dozen in a season ­ and those concerts have developed an audience, and given harpsichordists from at least four continents a platform in Argentina. Last year a group began  conversations about furthering the influence of the harpsichord and its music and that has resulted in a month-long series of concerts beginning Friday, Nov. 13/2009.


(BE) Course Manneristic Madrigals of Monteverdi

Contributed by Musica on Nov 09, 2009

Fans of early music don’t need an introduction of Claudio Monteverdi. For a long time, he was known for the first unsurpassed highlights of the early Western opera. Yet, his operas did not raise eyebrows, his madrigal bundles did. An example: in the foreword of his fifth Madrigal bundle, we read the discussion between Artusi and Monteverdi whether or not to use the new monidistic style.

Contributed by Admin on May 04, 2009

“At very few places do music and architecture join as closely together as at the Stimmwerck Tage, near to Regensburg.

In the August of each year, in seclusion from the hustle and bustle of the city, listeners dip into the atmosphere of early vocal music in the venerable abbey church.

In 2009, Leonhard Paminger (1495 – 1567) takes center stage in the Stimmwerck Days Festival. In close cooperation with the Musicology Institute (Institut für Musikwissenschaft) of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich , a cross-section of his work will be brought to auditory life on the Adlersberg.

After the events of the day are over, the artists look forward to a friendly communal drink in the cloister tavern next door.“
