This is an online music class, taught using Zoom
For centuries composers have used the Folia musical progression to create compositions often consisting of a theme and variations on that theme. This virtual course, for alto recorder, flute and oboe players at higher intermediate-advanced playing level, will focus on Bellinzani’s Sonata in D minor (La Follia) and address all aspects of approaching this Baroque work including the history of Folia, style, articulation, trills, ornamentation, form, keys, and strategies for approaching practice.
The final classes will be in masterclass format for those interested in performing part of the Sonata for all participants.
