Medieval Music Besalú, one of the Foundation for Iberian Music’s many early music partners, has just opened registration for its 5th Annual Course in July 2016.
Medieval Music Besalú is an extensive course in medieval music performance, held in the beautiful medieval town of Besalú, Spain (Catalonia). At the festival, students may take classes in all aspects of medieval music, from medieval Latin and Pythagorean tuning to reading music manuscripts, with of course, many opportunities for coaching in vocal and instrumental performance. Highlights of the upcoming course will include workshops in the Carmina Burana and liturgical drama.
A major highlight of the Granados Centenary celebrations will be the performance in New York of the long-lost masterpiece Cant de les estrelles (Song of the Stars) by Voices of Ascension, directed by Dennis Keene, with pianist Douglas Riva.
