The Monteverdi Legacy: Venetian Music from Monteverdi to Vivaldi
The Parley of Instruments

To mark the 450th anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi, the 2017 Cambridge Early Music Baroque course will be devoted to Venetian music, and in particular to exploring Monteverdi’s legacy throughout the Baroque period.
Each day we will offer technique workshops, choral and orchestral sessions for large-scale works, and one-to-a-part chamber music sessions exploring unusual repertoire in various combinations, not necessarily restricted to the Venetian theme.

GIrton College Cambridge

Made in Venice: Willaert, de Rore, Ganassi and Bassano, masters of the 16th century
Philip Thorby (course director & voices), David Hatcher (viols), Emma Murphy (recorders), Lynda Sayce (lutes), Frances Eustace & Jeremy West (loud winds)
Throughout the sixteenth century Venice was, of course, a major centre of music and culture in its own right.
We will explore not only the magnificence of multi-choir motets, but also the intimacy and intensity of the “Venetian” madrigals of Adriaan Willaert and Cypriano de Rore, combining voices and instruments. As well as working with our singers, instrumentalists will also be able to follow in the footsteps of Venetian masters from Sylvestro Ganassi to Giovanni Bassano, those masters of virtuosity and sensitivity to text and rhetoric, as well as exploring the more ceremonial (and foot-tapping) repertoire of the piffari.
