From the Bottom Up with Alissa Duryee, harpsichord and Jerôme Huille, cello
An opportunity to view works from the standard recorder repertoire, as well as 18th century arrangements, from the perspective of the continuo part. The duo Dialogues (Alissa Duryee, harpsichord, and Jérôme Huille, cello) will guide participants through the noteworthy features of the pieces as seen from ‘down under’. Demonstrations of different possible continuo realizations, articulations, tempi, and bowings will be given.
There will be ample time for playing along with the continuo team. Every question you’ve never dared to ask a continuo player will be answered! Participants should prepare the first, third, and fourth movements of Handel’s Sonata in F major, Op. 1, # 11 on alto recorder, and the following arrangements of Scots tunes by Francesco Barsanti: 1. Waly, Waly 2. Johnnie Faa 3. O Dear Mother, What Shall I Do? #3 should be played on soprano or tenor recorder. Geared to: intermediate to upper intermediate treble instruments.
