X. SAVARIA EARLY MUSIC SUMMER WORKSHOP
5-13 August, 2014
was a mere 25 years ago that some musicians in the town of Szombathely
became keenly interested in playing early music on authentic instruments.
Local ensembles like Capella Savaria, the Early Music Ensemble of
Szombathely or Capella Cantorum have given a great number of successful
concerts where the audience had the opportunity the works of famous
Renaissance and Baroque masters, and some time later, those of classic
composers. At the same time, the town could boast of regularly organising
(and supporting) different early music courses. During the past
ten years, the events of the Szombathely Early Music Week (1993)
and the Szombathely Early Music Summer Academy (1996-1998) attracted
a large number of visitors. Since 2005, the event has been held
under the title 'Early Music Summer Workshop'.
The lessons and practice
sessions for instrumentalists and chamber musicians, and the various
lectures delivered on interesting topics will offer a chance for
all the participants to become more familiar with the genre they
perform, to expand their knowledge on music aesthetics, authentic
instrumental practice and rhetorical skills relevant to the Renaissance
and Baroque period, and will also have ample opportunities to put
this new knowledge into practice.
The workshops will be held
in Hungarian, English and German.
Modern instruments are also allowed on the course
· Renaissance Dance House
· Hungarian Folk Dance House
· Gymnastics for instrumentalists - Dr. Királyné, Ildikó Pados
