Baroque Day (Oct 2022) - Online Ticket - All Sessions
Join us online or in person on Saturday 22nd October for our second London Piano Course featuring a day of workshops and presentations in which Graham Fitch shows how repertoire from the Baroque period can be played stylistically and expressively on the piano.
The day comprises the following sessions:
Style in Baroque Music: Ornamentation & Embellishment (9:30 – 10:30am BST) - Drawing upon detailed treatises on the subject from the Baroque period, Graham will provide several basic principles to simplify ornamentation and embellishment.
Playing Baroque Music Pianistically: Dynamics, Pedal & Tone Colour (10:30 – 11:00am) - In this session, Graham demonstrates creative approaches to playing Baroque music with personal authenticity - expressively and pianistically.
Performance Workshops (11:30 - 13:00) – Up to six pianists will perform Baroque works (or part thereof) to our in-person and online audience following which they will work with Graham on aspects such as style, interpretation, technique and practice methods.
Style in Baroque Music: Articulation (14:00 – 14:45) - Following on from the first presentations, this session explores how a variety of different touches can be used to add articulation and bring the printed page to life.
How to Learn a Fugue (14:45 – 15:30) - Graham will demonstrate several practice methods which can be applied to fugues and other contrapuntal music.
Performance Workshops - Continued (16:00 - 17:30)
