Vibrato: The MSG of Early Music

Vol. 21, No. 2; Summer 2015
Look Inside

ON THE COVER: Eliminating vibrato, along with playing on gut strings, was the most noticeable mark of historically informed performance style. Before it was even called HIP, employing “authentic instruments” set early-music players apart from symphony orchestras, and singing with a pristine, boy-like sound marked a new vocal coloring.

ON THE COVER: “I play period oboes and recorders and have a second specialty in 15th-century music. As period players, we’re specialists by definition, yet we may e called upon to play or sing music from anywhere between 1100-1850. For a wind player, this means maintaining skills and associated equipment for seven to fifteen instruments.”
