Corrette & Co. with Sally Merriman, Baroque bassoon
October 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT$25
Of the various Spanish music manuscripts compiled and copied for church instrumental groups There is an abundance of repertoire from the 18th century for two bass clef instruments, much of it centered in Paris. We’ll start our mini-tour with Les délices de la solitude by Michel Corrette, with some bruit de chasse hunting music and a Sarabande or two. A Rondeau and Rigaudon by Boismortier, an Andante Aria by Jean Daniel Braun, and a quick diversion to Amsterdam for a Canzona with Mr. Carolo are all possibilities for this class. Some of this two-part music was pedagogical – what can we learn from these pieces as we practice on our own? There will be some recorded tracks to play in different configurations, and music will be posted in advance. Open to: all players of Baroque bass instruments. Pitch: A = 415.
