Articulation

- Adriano Banchieri, Canzon La Galuppa​

- Antonio Bertali, Sonatella

- François Caroubel, Passameze

- Johann Ludwig Krebs(?), Fugue 4

From the conductor: Say WHAT? Speaking through articulation. Articulation is our killer app as recorder players: it is the one thing our instruments do better than any other, and our best tool for expressive playing. But how do you decide what articulations to use where? Working with a few clear principles derived from historical sources and using music from the 16th through 18th centuries for fodder, we’ll demystify this power tool for players at all levels, giving you multiple options and upping your expressive game. We’ll play a lot too!

Adam Bregman

2 PM PST meeting via Zoom

- La Spagna

 

From its earliest form as a monophonic tenor to its most florid setting in five parts, we will play through different stages of the tune and the counterpoint that accompanied it. We will also discuss peculiarities of rhythm, meter, and counterpoint that differentiate one type of dance (basse danse, bassadanza, or saltarello) from another, but all using the same tune!
