AEM ONLINE – BACH MEETS BACHIANAS– New Lute Duets from Douglas Freundlich, lute

November 6 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT


Attention Renaissance lute players—the pleasures of playing Bach can be yours! Chorale settings, dances from the orchestral suites, and the sublime lute Partita in C minor BWV 997 (originally for lute-harpsichord), all reimagined as duets for equal lutes. We’ll also explore some early 20th century Brazilian “choro,” tunes, the Bach-like melodic lines that inspired Villa-Lobos’ iconic Bachianas Brasileiras.
Enjoy an intercultural excursion with additional insights from music cognition research into what makes Bach’s melodies so engaging. All the lute parts are intabulated, and with your mute button engaged, you’re free from scrutiny. Lots of do-overs. Geared to: intermediate to advanced G lutes. Pitch: A=440.
