Judy Tarling’s course, intended for players of modern stringed instruments who would like to know more about the baroque way of doing things, is this year devoted to Vivaldi’s twelve Op 3 concertos, which go under the collective title of L’Estro Armonico, or Harmonic Inspiration. We’re looking for participants of intermediate to advanced standard, and we’ll be playing at modern concert pitch (A = 440 Hz). Since the collection consists of concertos with one, two and even four solo violinists and since some of the parts aren’t too frightening, there might well be some opportunities for eager and able violinists and cellists. But fluent sight-reading is highly desirable.
