Theresa (violin) and Alastair (harpsichord), bring their wealth of knowledge to encourage and cajole you into stylish performances of repertoire from the early 17th to late 18th centuries. A baroque chamber music course at A415 predominantly for pre-formed groups, individual players are also welcome to apply. Participants bring their own music, although tutors can suggest suitable repertoire.
There will be one tutti session with music provided by the tutors, the course culminates with an informal performance.
The standard of playing is advanced, and applicants should be proficient on their instrument and competent sight-readers. As we work at A415 we are only able to accept wind players on baroque instruments, but are happy to accept string players on modern instruments, as long as they are prepared to use gut strings and baroque bows. Applications from individual players are welcome, too, and will do our best to put together coherent ensembles.
Courses take place at Jackdaws in Great Elm, 3 miles outside Frome in Somerset. If you require B&B, we will book it on your behalf. Accommodation fees are payable in addition to the course fee.
A £50 deposit is required to secure your place on this course.
The Course Fee includes all meals, refreshments and tuition at Jackdaws, except breakfast, which is included in the separate B&B fee.
Lunch and dinner will be prepared on site by our dedicated Cooks and served in accordance with appropriate social distancing measures. If you are vegetarian/vegan, or have a food allergy, you must let us know in advance, so that our cooks can plan the meals for the weekend accordingly. We are ‘allergy aware’, but we rely on participants letting us know if they have specific food allergies. Please also let us know if you carry any emergency medication.
