The course is open to students of any level and will deal specifically with soloistic and consort recorder music of the 16th and 17th Centuries. A limited number of low recorders (tenor, bass, great bass) will be available for ensemble classes. Particular attention will be given to the practice of diminutions as exemplified in the treatises by Girolamo dalla Casa (Il vero modo di diminuir, 1584) and Giovanni Bassano (Ricercari, passaggi e cadenzie, 1585). For individual classes students may suggest pieces of their choice not stricly inherent to the main subject of the course.
