Clea Galhano: La Folia—The Art of Madness
October 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT$25
La Folía, or Follies of Portugal, also known as folies du Portugal, La Follia, and Folia, is one of the oldest remembered European musical themes, or primary material, generally melodic, of a composition, on record. The theme exists in two versions, referred to as early and late folias. The theme survived right through the 19th Century. Beethoven, Berlioz, Brahms and Liszt all exploited the tune. In this class we will listen to many different Follias as well play along some of the themes and variations from Baroque.
