An introduction to 16th century facsimile – a repeat of Alison Kinder’s 2020 online course for SEMF, with two new live Zoom tutorials. Session 1.

16 February 2021 @ 7:30 pm 8:30 pm

Alison Kinder’s recent online course for SEMF on playing or singing from facsimile was fully booked with a waiting list, so we’re delighted she’s agreed to repeat it. The course will follow the same format as before: there will be two (new) live tutorials at 7.30pm on 16th February and 2nd March via Zoom, plus two specially prepared “play-along” videos (pitch A=440) so participants can practice what they’ve learnt. Numbers will be strictly limited to ensure the tutorials can be properly interactive. Music – suitable for both singers and players – will be provided. So much renaissance music is now available in modern editions that you may think “why bother” to learn to read it from the original notation. But playing or singing music as it was originally “published” can illuminate how to interpret modern editions – as well as being fascinating in its own right. In this short practical course Alison Kinder will explain how to interpret renaissance composers’ original notation, and will provide lots of opportunities to “play – or sing – along” with her (muted, of course!). The course will have a minimum fee of £15 for Forum members, £20 for non-members. Online booking form
