1st Early Music Academy at the Palace of Gödöllő

Categories: Course.

Within the frame of the 1st Early Music Summer Academy at Gödöllő – held between the 30th of July and the 5th of August, 2018 – we kindly invite all of those musicians over 14, who are insterested in performing early music orchestral and chamber music repertoire the ‘historically’, or ‘stylistically‘ correct way.
Since the course’s main
 aim is to work out an “authentic” string orchestra sound, we mostly expect string and keyboard players to apply, however any other instrumentalists or even singers are welcome, since the opportunity to form any type of chamber groups is endless!
Application is possible both with historic and/or modern instruments, too!


Teachers of the course:

Szabolcs Illés – baroque violin, strings, Fanni Edőcs – harpsichord, basso continuo and Julianna Bereczki – harpsichord, piano, basso continuo.

The summer academy closes by a final concert with pieces chosen from the repertoire studied during the week.
