Friday 4 – Sunday 6 July
French Fin de Siècle Piano Music
Kenneth van Barthold
Course No. 3097
Level: Intermediate - Advanced
We are sorry to announce that we have had to cancel this course. You can view our other piano courses here.
This repertoire has recently been brought back to popularity with new scholarship, editions, recordings and performances appearing all the time. Despite this resurgence, many pianists still confess to feeling at sea in the genre. Bring any piece by Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Ravel, Fauré, Satie or Poulenc that tempts you and we will go in search of the French sound! Kenneth van Barthold was entirely trained at the Paris Conservatoire where he spent four years in the piano class of Yves Nat, won a Première Mention in Solfège and studied Harmonie, Contrepoint d’Espèces and Fugue d’Ecole with Paule Maurice, Grand Prix de Rôme.
