Workshop with Rainer Beckmann

July 14 "À la française” - Ornamentation in French Baroque Music"


Got style? French Baroque music is often described as subtle, tender, delicate, elegant, etc. How does stylish ornamentation enhance French music's sweetness, vigor and beauty? How do les agréments turn it into such a refined language? We'll first learn from Hotteterre's many helpful examples and then apply ornaments to undecorated pieces by Lully and others. Allons-y! This is a NAVRS members only event. NOTE: All sessions begin at 7:00 PM, Eastern. The Zoom link will be live 15 minutes prior.
