The course

  • Ensemble music with songs, madrigals and dances from the French and Italian Renaissance during the afternoon (work on movement, tuning and ornamentation).

For the advanced levels, the famous variations of Jacob van Eyck (Der Fluyten Lust Hof – 17th century) will form the basis of the solo repertoire.
Beginners will be able to tackle the simpler themes and variations, or other melodies taken from dances (Attaingnant, Phalèse, Praetorius etc.).
Trainees are encouraged to prepare their repertoire in advance.
