    4. Partimento – a workshop with Edoardo Bellotti

    ÖRGRYTE PARISH HALL

     

    The “Partimento Approach”: A different way to learn organ, improvisation, composition and literature
    The topic of "Partimenti" has become very fashionable in recent years, which has changed the perspective of Music Theory and aroused a lot of interest on musical pedagogy of the 18th century as well as performance practice. At the same time, however, this development created the illusion that we understood once and for all the secret of improvisation. In fact, the Neapolitan "Partimento" of the late eighteenth century is the point of arrival of an educational path that dates back to Renaissance sources. Although not using the term “Partimento”, one of the earliest sources is "L'Organo Suonarino" by Adriano Banchieri (1605).
    During our Workshop we will talk about these sources and the development of the "Partimento" over the course of almost three centuries. For fruitful participation, Edoardo Bellotti recommends the following activities:

     

    1. Read his article on Adriano Banchieri, which clears up the theoretical and practical foundations.
    2. Try to realize the First Partimento by Fedele Fenaroli harmonically, and then with ornaments, as Derek Remes
    suggests in his edition.
    3. Try to realize the first verses of Bernardo Pasquini, identifying the patterns present in them and the possibilities of imitations.

     

    These texts and materials will be sent to you when you register for this workshop.

     

     

     
    5. Ensemble Skills for organists

    ARTISTEN

     

    Workshop with the duo clavichord, Ulrika Davidsson and Joel Speerstra.

     

    Organists spend so much time working alone on their repertoire that sometimes musical skills which develop in ensemble musicians can so easily be ignored in our solo practice sessions. Of course, as organists, we spend time accompanying solo musicians and working with choirs. But the 18th-century tradition of reading repertoire together, often on two clavichords, led us to build a duo-clavichord with two instruments in one box. This vis-a-vis instrument allows players to sit across from each other and hear and see the ensemble music being made in an optimal way. It has been an excellent tool for exploring and developing ensemble skills and in previous workshops we have only worked with two people at a time, exploring Bach’s trio sonatas and parts of Bach’s Art of Fugue. This year will try to expand the ensemble and work with the duo clavichord like a string quartet. Four participants at a time will work on clavichord technique for organists in ensembles that will explore organ repertoire from Scheidt, Sweelinck, and Bach to more advanced quartet experiments including Haydn, Beethoven, Bartok, and Ravel.
