Baroque Workshops

From 2019 on we are offering Baroque workshops. We'll focus on music that doesn't ask for virtuosic soloists but for attentive ensemble players. The repertoire ranges from Jean-Baptiste Lully to Georg Muffat, from Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, from Henry Purcell to George Frideric Handel.

The music will be available 3-4 weeks in advance so you can prepare your part. We shall work from 17th or 18th century prints or modern editions. Most of the time we'll use the modern neo-baroque pitch of 415 Hz, since most wind players will have such instruments.

We'll also run Baroque Workshop Lab weekends dedicated to chamber music. Here we'll try to match the historical facts as close as possible and try to get it right in regards to pitch, tuning, temperament, articulation etc.

On top of this there is a new Summer School in August with a unique chance to study with the masters. Special guest for 2019 in Max van Egmond.
