Technique and Ensemble for advanced beginner/lower intermediate
Two classes are presented for the advanced beginner/lower intermediate player in mind.
If you are relatively new to the recorder or working on a new set of fingerings (C or F) and want to gain strength in your technique and confidence in your ensemble playing, then these two classes will help you reach those goals.
In the Saturday class, Mona Mann will work with you on recorder technique and go over the tunes that will be presented on the Sunday class.
Laura Kuhlman, with the help from her colleagues in the Oregon Renaissance Band Trio, will practice with you on trios designed to practice the skills of ensemble playing during the class on Sunday.

available from Honeysuckle Music.

Lisette Kielson
Simon Says: Step Forward for Duets & Technique
I won't be quite the taskmaster as Simon in this technique class! With positivity and encouragement, I will address finger coordination, articulation, phrasing, and more, through demonstration, imitation, and duet playing (you'll be on mute). Selections will be taken from Michel Corrette's Pièces pour la musette, op. 5 and Jacques Paisible's Six Sonatas of Two Parts, op. 1. These duos work best on 2 altos, but tenor is definitely possible with a few octave adjustments. For an extra challenge learn both lines as we'll have an opportunity to switch parts!  (intermediate and above recorder players)
Session 122  Saturday 12:00 - 1:15
Ros Morley
Cool Contrapuntal Consort Conversations
What we all love about playing in consort is the way different themes and melodies are shared around the ensemble creating sweet musical conversations.  In this class you will play a variety of canons and consort pieces in 2-4 parts and examine the wonderful ways in which composers combine and recombine melodic material, beginning with a late medieval "Caccia" and ending with the magnificent d minor fantasia in 4 parts of Purcell, visiting Josquin, Byrd, Gibbons and others along the way.

Session 132  Saturday  2:00 - 3:15
Holly Mauer
Tenors Take the Lied: German Songs of the 16th century
We'll work on bow control, fingering issues and rhythmic accuracy as we play the songs of German composers like Senfl, Hofhaimer and Issac. Some of these melodies, like Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen, will be familiar while many may be new to the ensemble. We'll learn to sing with our viols! Open to recorders and viols.
Session 131  Saturday  2:00 - 3:15
James Chaudior
Fortuna desperata: Settings of a popular Italian song
In this class, we will play multiple settings of Fortuna desperata, a popular Italian song from the second half of the fifteenth century that triggered the imagination of composers well into the sixteenth century. With close to forty known settings of Fortuna desperata surviving, its importance in renaissance music is a topic to explore and enjoy playing. An intriguing feature of this work is the equal importance of the melody and countermelody, to the extent that they were used separately, as well as together. The class will focus on the original three-voice setting (c.1470) and adaptations thereof.
 
Performance level is Intermediate and above.  Instrumentation: SATB, (soprano players should be able to read down the octave).

Gayle Neuman
John Dunstable and Friends: Inventors of Modern Music. 
From the early renaissance to the 21st century the triad has defined the basic harmonic structure of western music.  Where did this practice originate?  It was from John Dunstable and his other English contemporaries - according to the 15th century poet Martin le Franc who witnessed this change: "...G. Du Fay and Binchois...they have a new practice of making lively consonance...They took on the guise of the English and followed Dunstable..." We'll explore the supremely original sacred and secular music of John Dunstable, John Bedyngham, John Plummer, and the guy who serves to prove there were other first names besides John, Leonel Power.  See where it all began - with pieces like the eternal masterpiece "Quam pulchra es", this music will transport you to remarkably serene places where other music doesn't go.  We will play the music in real time so you can play along!  For intermediate players of recorders, strings, and other instruments.

Session 212  Sunday 10:00 - 11:15
Kate Shuldiner
What's in a name?: Tasso and Lasso
Is it Giovanni Maria, Ioan Maria, or Joan Maria Tasso? This composer's life is full of mysteries but the one thing we know for certain are the beautiful duets ascribed to those names. On the other side of the musical coin, Orlando di Lasso, Orlandus Lassus, or perhaps is it Roland De Lassus?, is well known and rather prolific; composing more than 2,000 pieces. Kate Shuldiner will guide you through a sampling of beautiful duets that have as much intrigue as the names of their composers.

Session 211  Sunday 10:00 - 11:15

Clea Galhano
Black Lives Matter: Honoring the Compositions of Brazilian Slaves (Lundu), and the Work of Colonial Brazil's Important Mixed-Race Composer - José Maurício Nunes Garcia
Play along and learn about Lundu, a form of African song and dance introduced in Brazil and sing and play along with a work by Brazilian composer Padre José Maurício Nunes Garcia, both guided by Brazilian recorder player Clea Galhano.

Brazilian music has its roots in powerful African rhythms and beautiful Portuguese melodies. Throughout my career I have always incorporated Brazilian repertory in my concerts.  For me it is a way of sharing its beauty and spreading awareness of this inspiring music to broad audiences. - Clea Galhano

Jennifer Carpenter
The Pastoral Life:
Often in the pastoral, authors want to express the ideal - a longing of innocence and happiness. Sounds pretty good right now! Come explore the popularity and breadth of musical settings from the celebrated dramatic pastoral Il pastor fido ("The Faithful Shepherd") and music from Purcell's The Fairy Queen. Experience both the serious and the frivolous side of pastoral themes from the 16th and 17th centuries. Both of these works epitomize the spirit of their time, which we'll discover is not so different than now! All instruments welcome - intermediate and up.
