THE NORTH-GERMAN BAROQUE AND THE ITALIAN CONNECTION
at the Cahman (1728) and Schwan (1783) organs
Welcome to a summer course for those who would like to develop their ability to interpret above all North-German Baroque music. We will work principally at the Cahman Organ in Lövstabruk, a famous instrument from 1728, in original condition.
The focus of the Academy in 2017 will be music from Girolamo Frescobaldi to Johann Sebastian Bach, in other words the building of stilus fantasticus and its northward spread into northern Europe. Students are, however, also encouraged to play other early music as well.
