Speech and Imagery in C. P. E. Bach’s Sonata in A-minor for flute solo
November 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CSTFree
Music-making is often compared to storytelling, which combines speech with imagery to create an emotional impact on the listener. Drawing parallels from fine art photography and the art of oratory found in historical sources, baroque flutists Teddie Hwang and Na’ama Lion will demonstrate how these principles give insight into understanding musical content, context, and interpretation in C. P. E. Bach’s Sonata in A minor.
In the latter part of the workshop, there will be a chance for players to experiment with applying the presented principles in one’s own interpretation of the piece. The event is open to both historical and modern flute players. By learning about visualization and oratory skills, participants will walk away with tools and ideas on how one can bring depth, understanding, and eloquence to the performance of the sonata. The workshop concludes with a Q & A discussion as time permits. To get the most out of the workshop, participants are encouraged to study the sonata beforehand.
