Tutor: Judy Tarling
Fri 10 – Sun 12 May
Sacrilege? Not at all. Judy Tarling will show participants, who should be of intermediate to advanced standard, how it’s possible to apply historical performance principles when you play music written before about 1750 on modern instruments at standard concert pitch (A = 440Hz). We’ll look at music by composers like Corelli, Handel and Vivaldi as well as less familiar repertoire, and there might be some solo opportunities. Judy is a much loved Benslow regular as well as a world-renowned baroque violinist, and you’ll go away with fresh insights into this wonderful repertoire. Good sight reading ability will be an advantage.
