Harpsichord Intensive 2018

All news

February 8th 2018

Three days of masterclasses, team teaching, lecture-demonstrations, and teacher concerts*  

Jacques Ogg, Fabio Bonizzoni, Siebe Henstra, Barbara Willi, Kathryn Cok and Isaac Alonso Molina. (Guest performance Guus Janssen)      

For the first time in the history of the school there will be a three days intensive course of the entire harpsichord faculty. A very diverse program is offered where a spectrum of repertoire and instruments will be studied in a constant dialogue of teachers and students.

The lectures are presented by the participating teachers who will also contribute with a chamber concert in the beautiful acoustics of the Louis XVI room in the Pulchri Studio’s. There is a limited capacity of audience in the hall so only participants of the entire intensive will have access to the concerts, which are free of charge.

Students (internal and external) can apply through an email to Brigitte Rebel.   
In case of active participation they have to propose two pieces they would like to work on and will hear at the beginning of the course if and when they have a slot in the schedule.

Note: apply before 22 February!  


* Concerts will take place in Pulchri Studio’s in the Louis XVI hall
