Music of the Renaissance

with Capella de la Torre
in cooperation with Internationaler Arbeitskreis für Musik e.V.

The course is aimed at advanced players and singers. Music will be played in small and large groups, also from old notation, with sacred and secular music by Pierre de la Rue, Josquin Desprez, Heinrich Issac, Tomas Luis de Victoria, Serafino Razzi and others.
The workshop will begin on Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. and end on Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. with a final concert together. Departure is on 13.11. after breakfast.

Target group
Players of Renaissance wind instruments (recorder, reeds, zinc, trombone, crumhorn, etc.), players of string instruments (violin, viola, violoncello, viola da gamba), singers who are interested in the performance practice of Renaissance music and who have experience in sight-reading or sight-singing and on their instruments.
This is the right place for those who like to play in mixed ensembles, are looking for new literature and are looking for inspiration for their own music making.
When registering, please indicate which instruments you will bring to the workshop. We recommend that wind players limit themselves to one or two instruments that will be played particularly intensively by the participants in the run-up to the workshop.
