Event Description

For the approach of Medieval and Renaissance music one must know the particular knowledge and technique for the performance. 
Singing technique of this period is very specific and needs some consideration from the historical background and philosophy. Since we see many young students and musicians are interested in this subject. 
Foundation Cappella Stella Maris is willing offer an opportunity to young (semi -)professional musicians to be able to learn the repertoires of Guillame Dufay(1397-1474), a Franco-Flemish composer. 
The reason we chose Dufay is; Dufay is the unique composer who lived through later Medieval to the Early Renaissance and traveled to France, Italy. He improved his composition style according to the environment where and when he was living. His works are very interesting and various. Because of this reason, his compositions ask us many possibility and demand some way to develop the singing / playing technique , which is also very useful to use for performance practice of later music.

Dr.Rebecca Stewart - voice
Milo Machover - voice, instrument
Koen van der Meer - theory

We expect the musical level of the participants to be (semi-)professional or that of conservatory or music university students. During the course all participants will read from original notation (there will be an orientation class).

Program is to be announced! In the course we will be treating compositions from Dufay during the period he worked in Italy from original notation. (see article Dufay`s footsteps in those of his Papal patrons on this website)

The course fee is 250 euro. For students who study at music conservatory in The Netherlands, there is a possibility to get some support from a few funds.

For Auditor: 15 euro per day. Please inform us beforehand.

This is possible by phone or email. 
Please mention your name, a short CV, your voice type and which instrument you play.

The accommodation during the course is not included in the fee. If you need place to overnight, please let us know. We can try to find a place with a reasonable price (between 25-35 euros) for you, but be aware that it will not be a single room. With an extra cost you can also ask a single room.
