2018-19 Workshop season!

Ros Morley
Family Affairs
Examining the work of different generations of composers from the same family can often give us a special glimpse into important stylistic shifts or fashions.  Among the musical dynasties in the 16th and 17th centuries are several who wrote music specifically for viols (or for strings in general) and whose music is wonderful to play.  This workshop will investigate the music of several pairs of family members such as the Venetian uncle and nephew, Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli,  and two dynasties whose members worked in both Italy and England, father and son, Ferrabosco I and II, and cousins Giovanni and Jerome Bassano.
