Humor Bizzarro 2017: Angela Paletta – Baroque oboe and QiGong

Course program and teacher’s curriculum

The course is open to amateurs or professionals who wish to approach the baroque and classical repertory with the period instrument or with the modern one. The program will focus on performing and interpretative aspects and on reed building tecniques. Particular attention will be given to the study of respiration with specially aimed QiGong exercises. Individual and collective classes will aim to the study of the soloistic and chamber repertory of the period, both sacred and profane, possibly in conjunction with singing, dance or theatre classes. It’s possible to agree with the teacher on a special repertory proposed by the student. A limited number of study instruments, kindly supplied by the maker Alberto Ponchio (website http://www.anciuti.com), will be available for the class; students are therefore advised, if possible, to bring their own instrument.

For the dance: Claudia Celi (Le bellezze d’Olimpia – Italian Dances of the 16th-17th centuries), Ilaria Sainato (La bonne amitié – European Dances of the 17th-18th centuries and Rhetoric Gesture Seminar) and Paolo Di Segni (The Regency Ball  ̶  Social dances of the Early 19th century); for the music: Rosanna Rossoni (Renaissance and baroque Singing), Marco Rosa Salva (Recorderr), Angela Paletta (Baroque Oboe barocco and Qi Gong Seminario), Paolo Tagliapietra (Cembalo Accompaniment) and Francesco Tomasi (Renaissance Lute, Theorbo and Baroque Guitar).
