Course program and teacher’s curriculum
I Fiori Musicali by Girolamo Frescobaldi (Venezia, Vincenti 1635) dedicated to Cardinal Antonio Barberini
Even if their destination for the organ is expressly specified by the author, the Fiori Musicali by Girolamo Frescobaldi are well suited for performance by a recorder ensemble, because of the stictly polyphonic 4-part writing, as shown by the original printing in score and not in tablature.
The recorder course is open to students of any level. Individual lessons and ensemble consort classes will be featured (a number of replicas of historical instruments will be avaiable). For the individual lessons, students can suggest pieces of their choice, also different from the main theme of the course.
