(IT) Accordone Newsletter (19 apr 2012)

Contributed by Admin on Apr 26, 2012

(From the latest Accordone newsletter, the concert listings for the month of May and June 2012)

Background notes of Accordone: “Guido Morini and Marco Beasley founded Accordone in 1984, motivated by a great passion for the music before Bach, for original instruments and for a new musicological approach to problems of interpretation.

(US) Amherst Early Music Memorial Day Weekend 2012 (25-28 May 2012)

Contributed by Admin on Apr 24, 2012

The Amherst Early Music Weekend Workshops are smaller, more relaxed versions of the summer festival. Take classes in a variety of subjects for most of the day -- repertory, notation, technique, and ensembles -- and in the evenings enjoy all-workshop group sessions (kind of like Collegium at the Festival) and a Sunday night faculty concert. There's also English country dancing and the companionship of your fellow musicians.”
