March 29th - 31st 2019
The Beeches, Bournville
The annual Advanced Course enables players to work on more difficult and unusual repertoire: consorts by Purcell and Lawes, the fabulous repertoire for two trebles and two basses by people like Jenkins and Simpson, and the fantastic later repertoire for three basses by Forqueray, Nicolai and others.
Players for these courses need to be experienced, technically competent, and not afraid of heights, clefs, or ormanents! If you're not sure whether this course is for you, have a look at our guidelines, or contact us.
The March 2019 course will focus on Purcell and Locke. Set repertoire:
Locke: Suite No. 2 in D Major
Purcell: Fantasia a4 No. 7, Fantasia a5 'on one note'
Pitch 415, temperament 1/6 comma
