Zoom Classes with Tish Berlin in August

Greetings!

I hope you can join me for Zoom classes in August. To register, please scroll to the bottom of this message to find the registration form and information on how to pay.
You may enroll for as many or as few classes as you wish.

1. Magnifying Glass on Ensemble Skills III

August 17-31, 2021
Take them all or as many as you like. Each individual class is $25.00. Participation in previous Magnifying Glass on Ensemble Skills classes is not a prerequisite for enrolling in this class.

This class will focus on rhythm skills, especially those in Renaissance music. You’ll play along with me on duos, and with my GarageBand recordings of 15th-, 16th-, and 17th-century dance music, chansons, tenor lieder, madrigals, and more.

August 17: dance music from the early 17th century and songs from early 16th century Germany. Dances from Praetorius’ Terpsichore and works by Senfl.

August 24: early 16th-century Italian madrigal by Verdelot and late 16th-century bicinium by Morley.

August 31: 15th-century rhythms in the music of Dufay and Landini.

For intermediate to upper intermediate recorder players.

The French song “Est-ce Mars?” was set by many composers. This class will focus on two wildly different compositions – an early 17th-century five-part canzona by Samuel Scheidt and the mid 20th-century Partita in C for four recorders by Hans Ulrich Staeps.

August 17: Introduction to both the Scheidt and the Staeps. Plan to play through both as much as time allows.

August 31: continuation of in-depth work and play-through of both pieces

For upper intermediate to advanced instrumentalists. Play-along recordings will be on recorders at 4-foot pitch, an octave higher than viol and dulcian consort so those instruments may want to play lower parts.
Pitch: A=440.

Port Townsend 2021 Summer Workshop

Port Townsend

Early Music Workshop

held remotely this year in the comfort of your own home!

July 6 – August 1, 2021

As more and more people get vaccinated, and the weather warms up, there is a fierce desire to get off screen and back to in-person music making. Believe us, we are right there with you, but we must maintain caution and take baby steps while emerging out of the pandemic—especially with any kind of large gathering of players of wind instruments. Our choice to offer a virtual workshop is and was the only prudent one we could make at this time. We are profoundly grateful for the technology and continue to be in awe of everyone’s adaptability and the power of remote teaching and learning. The willingness and creativity from faculty to offer unique topics has been overwhelmingly positive. They all love teaching and there is truly something for everyone.

We can boast four mini-workshops, which will provide greater immersion on the same topic over several consecutive days, and eight single one-off classes. Mini workshops will be with Eric Mentzel from the Medieval Women’s Choir who will illuminate the many facets of medieval song; recorder virtuosi Eva Legene and Astrid Andersson will help us unravel and adapt Telemann’s own ornamentation from the methodical sonatas to his duets; the inimitable Mary Springfels will gently coax us to jump headfirst into the importance of rhetoric in the Baroque; and Anna Mansbridge will infectiously encourage us to kick up our feet and dance! Single class instructors will include Saskia Coolen from Holland, Frances Blaker and Tish Berlin from California, Phil and Gayle Newman from Oregon, Cléa Galhano zooming in from Brazil (!) and our own rising stars Caroline Nicolas and Isabella Pagel from Seattle. We are especially excited for Isabella to offer two fascinating classes for kids with indigenous music from around the world! July is still a long way off, but we are eager to embark on this collaboration and hope to see you there!

As always, Vicki will be available to help with questions about class content, and Jo will be available to help with logistics and practical questions.

Feel free to email us!

🌷 SFRS Chapter Meeting with Malachai Bandy! Wednesday, May 19

Dear SFRS and SRS members,

Hello, again, and welcome! Below are the details for our upcoming chapter meeting on Wednesday, May 19. Our conductor for this meeting will be Malachai Komanoff Bandy, whom some of you may know from the 2019 SFEMS Summer Recorder Workshop, where he taught and lectured, wowing the students with his deep knowledge of number symbolism as well as his musical skills. We are delighted to have this brilliant musician and teacher lead our chapters for the final (official) meeting of our season. And what a season it has been! We miss playing in person, of course, but what great opportunities we’ve had to be taught by these amazing professionals right in our own homes.

Our May conductor with a few of the many instruments he plays:
viol, recorder, krumhorn, and bagpipe

A native of Los Angeles, MALACHAI KOMANOFF BANDY , has amassed a professional performance record on some twenty instruments spanning over 800 years of music history. He graduated cum laude with Distinction in Research and Creative Work from Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music with double bass and music history degrees. In recent years, Malachai has performed as a violist da gamba, violonist, and renaissance double-reed player with various ensembles in the U.S. and Europe, including The Orpheon Consort, Ars Lyrica Houston, Voices of Music, Queens Baroque, Tesserae, and Ciaramella. He is also a featured soloist in Bear McCreary’s scores to the films 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016, playing yayli tanbur), Welcome Home (2018, playing viol), the Emmy-winning title theme for the STARZ television series DaVinci’s Demons (2013, playing viol), and the video game God of War (2018, playing nyckelharpa). After completing a Wagoner Fellowship-funded course of viola da gamba and organological study with José Vázquez in Austria, Spain, and Switzerland, Malachai received a Presser Graduate Award (2016) to create the first comprehensive aural catalog of the Orpheon Foundation’s fifty historical violas da gamba (Duino, Italy). He is currently a PhD candidate and Oakley Fellow in Historical Musicology at the USC Thornton School of Music, in 2020 and 2021 taught courses as Visiting Lecturer at both Pomona College and Scripps College, and was the 2019 recipient of both the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music’s Irene Alm Memorial Prize and the AMS Pacific Southwest Chapter’s Ingolf Dahl Award in Musicology. Malachai’s scholarly interests include topics pertaining to occult philosophy, number symbolism, and Rosicrucianism in the North-German Baroque, as well as viola da gamba technique, repertoire, instrument design, and iconography.

THE MUSIC:

Malachai has compiled an all Michael Praetorius program for next week, marking the 400th-anniversary of his death. (Praetorius lived from 1571 to 1621 and, incredibly, died on his 50th birthday.) And besides, says Malachai, “he’s, like, the absolute greatest polyphonist ever”. He further says, “For whatever reason, polychoral logistics aside during COVID, it seems that Josquin is still getting a lot more attention (for his 500th) than Praetorius. So, let’s change that–and after the year we’ve all had, some texts about regeneration and redemption never hurt, not to mention the opportunity to play 8-voice polyphony ‘together’ again. I can’t wait!”

NB: Parts are labeled by voice type, not recorder size, but have noted which instruments are recommended for each line below.

  1. Es ist ein’ Ros’ entsprungen (SATB) 1-page SCORE)
  2. In Natali Domini (SSAB or A8A8TB) 2-page SCORE
  3. In dulci jubilo (single-line chorale in original notation) – all sizes of recorder, 1 page
    In dulci jubilo à 8 (SA8TB and SA8TB) 3-page, 2-voice PARTS
  4. Angelus ad pastores ait (SA8(or S)TB and SA8TB) 2-page PARTS
  5. Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland (Veni redemptor) – single-line chorale in original notation – all sizes of recorder, 1 page
    Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland à 8 (SA8TB and SA8TB) 2-page PARTS

The Dance of the Musette: Duos by Chèdeville and CorretteLisette Kielson leads the joint Boulder and Denver Recorder Societies in a virtual playing session of duets by Chèdeville and Corrette. These 18th century dances for the popular musette (or equal instruments) provide a wonderful point of departure for work on articulation and technique as well as musical style and expression. You’ll have the opportunity to play the same part with Lisette, the alternate duet line, or both (as there will be time to switch parts)! Geared toward intermediate and above SAT recorders and treble instruments. Pitch: A=440

Based in Central Illinois Lisette Kielson performs as soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player throughout the Midwest. Past President of the ARS and former Director of Bradley University’s Collegium Musicum, Lisette teaches on the faculty of the Whitewater Early Music Festival, serves as Music Director of the ARS Chicago Chapter, and leads workshops and masterclasses throughout the country (via her new best friend, Zoom)! Lisette holds Bachelor and Master Degrees in flute performance from Indiana University and a post-master’s Diploma in recorder performance from The Royal Conservatory of The Hague. She has recorded with Centaur Records as well as with her own label. Read more at LisetteKielson.com.

Mountain Collegium

Dear Friend of Mountain Collegium,

We are pleased to announce 2021 Mountain Collegium Early Music & Folk Music Workshop. This summer’s offerings are outstanding and we hope you will join us for our virtual workshop Tuesday, June 29 through Saturday, July 3. Multiple class options each day, along with the John Trexler Folk Lecture and the Faculty Concert, make for a week full of fun music-making! Classes will be presented online through Zoom.

This year we will offer a special program for emerging recorder players. This is perfect for folks who picked up the recorder over the past year or two, or for those who have taken a break from playing and need to dust off some cobwebs. These classes are full of great technique and playing tips that benefit recorder players on ALL levels, so others can also select these classes. Anne Timberlake, Gwyn Roberts, Jody Miller, and Phil Hollar all team up to help nudge you to the next level!

Keyboard players should also check out Barb Weiss’s Harpsichord Lab, which will cover dynamics, articulation, figure reading, and more!

And, as always, renowned viol, recorder, brass, and folk teachers who have put together a great mix of class topics!

You can find ALL the fine faculty by clicking HERE.

Check out our website for the class offerings and special package discounts for the Weeklong Pass, Emerging Recorder program, and Harpsichord Lab. Visit us at www.mountaincollegium.org.

We hope you join us this summer!
