Info

Johann Sebastian Bach must have had an enormous working library in his apartment at St Thomas's church in Leipzig. The centre-piece of this year's Baroque course will be portions of his great Mass in B minor but during the week, and in the associated concerts, we will also explore a range of other music he composed, collected and performed. This repertoire will include pieces by earlier members of his family, those composed by his pupils and other members of his circle, and works by contemporaries such as Handel, Telemann, Vivaldi and Pergolesi that he is known to have arranged or performed.

Each day we will offer technique workshops, choral and orchestral sessions for large-scale works, and one-to-a-part chamber music sessions selected and coached by the tutors exploring unusual repertoire in various combinations. Singers may have chances to sing in small ensembles and occasional solos as well as in a chamber choir. Instrumentalists (particularly wind players) may also have opportunities to sing chorus parts.
