Hartt Baroque Orchestra Seminar

The Baroque Orchestra Seminar is a workshop for string teachers, professional players, advanced students, and professional players that explores Baroque orchestral repertoire and practices. Participants will learn period string playing and have the opportunity to play in a Baroque orchestra setting. Music of the Baroque was heavily governed by the rules of prose and poetry, and using repertoire by notable composers such as Bach, Corelli, Telemann, and Vivaldi, participants will learn Baroque bowing technique, articulation, music phrasing based on harmony and rhetorical features, notation, and dance forms through practical as well as pedagogical application. A short performance by the participants will culminate the week’s work. Open discussion about performance practice issues and string pedagogy is highly encouraged and participants are asked to bring works, either solo or ensemble, to be used as case studies. This clinic is less about use of Baroque instruments and more about stylistic awareness. Participants will explore performance practices mainly on modern instruments. However, participants with period instruments/bows are invited to bring them to the sessions. A limited number of Baroque violin bows will be made available.
