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
  6. A selection from Terpsichore (SATB) scores *

The usual details of when and where for Wednesday’s meeting:

When: Wednesday, May 19, 2021 from 7:30 to 9:00 PM

Where: In the comfort of your own living room, den, garden shed, office, house boat, kitchen, garage, camper van, or studio.

Mid-Peninsula Recorder Orchestra

AN INVITATION FROM THE MID-PENINSULA RECORDER ORCHESTRA
WEDNESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 10, 2021

Fred Palmer and the Mid-Peninsula Recorder Orchestra invite you to be our guests for a virtual orchestra meeting and practice session on the evening of Wednesday, February 10. Fred will be leading the meeting and conducting us in playing several pieces of music. The Zoom session will open around 7:15 pm and the meeting proper and music will start at 7:30 pm.

The music includes music from a wide range of times: Mesomedes’ “Hymn to the Sun” from abput 150 C.E., DuFay’s “Quel fronte signorille” from the fifteenth century; Schein’s “Suite No. 15” from the early seventeenth century, and Telemann’s “Overture in C major”, eighteenth century.

During music-playing times we will all be muted and playing along with the sound files that Fred will be playing from his computer as he conducts. Members of the orchestra are encouraged to play their assigned parts; guests may play whatever part they choose. (Of course anyone may actually play any part they wish; no one else will hear you so you have a great chance to experiment.)

The Zoom link and passcode for the meeting are copied below. Please try to join us a few minutes before 7:30 if you can to avoid a last-minute rush at the door. Please direct your questions about obtaining music in advance and joining the Zoom session to me: rayhwhite@yahoo.com

We hope you can join us online on February 10!

tibia Duo’s Practice Challenge #22

Greetings!

Please read on for your invitation to join Tibia Recorder Duo (Tish Berlin and Frances Blaker) for our 22nd Practice Challenge. We start on Monday January 18th and finish on Sunday February 28th. We hope you’ll join us!

Dear fellow musicians,
In this time of COVID-19, getting together to make music with others is too risky, but we all need music more than ever! During Practice Challenges # 17 to 21 (the first five PCs during almost-national shelter-in-place orders) there was a wonderful sense of community with our fellow practicers. We want to keep that sense of community going! We hope you’ll join Tibia Recorder Duo in our quest to make practicing recorder (or any other instrument, or voice) a part of everyday life for six weeks. Even a five-minute practice session counts, so don’t be daunted! We are here to help and encourage!

#22: A Practice Challenge for Extraordinary Times
Monday, January 18th – Sunday, February 28, 2021

Tier 1 is free and is designed to provide a community of practicers (that’s you!) with:

  • Inspirational messages once a week from Tish & Frances!
  • As incentive and accountability, you can opt to email us weekly check-in reports. (We read them all, but can’t respond to them all – there are just too many of you!)
  • Participation in the private member-led group email exchange. This part is also optional, but we love this part of the Practice Challenge – participants always ask great questions and receive helpful support from the group. We use Groups.io for this forum.

Tier 2 is a paid tier – the fee is $32. Tier 2 participants receive all of the benefits of Tier 1 AND:

  • Can email us with questions as part of their weekly check-in report, and we can answer them!
  • Practice materials! The materials we send are not homework and you can use them as you see fit. Those of you who have your own materials to work on may wish to use the PC materials as supplemental material, save them for later, or just to play for fun!
  • Access to our play-along videos – we play trios minus one, so you can play along with us. You’ll have access to the music in advance, with markings for phrasing and articulation. Every other week you’ll receive two trio-minus-one videos – one geared toward more advanced players and one toward less advanced players. For alternate weeks, see next item.
  • Barbara Weiss, harpsichordist, will provide play-along continuo recordings on alternate weeks. For Practice Challenge #22 we’ll be focusing on dance movements by French Baroque composers geared toward the more advanced players, and on dances from the 1612 Terpsichore publication geared toward the less advanced players. Barbara can also provide tailored recordings for you – contact her privately at harpsichordweiss to inquire about her rates.

Click here to register for Tier 1 or Tier 2!

We hope you will join us at one of these two levels. As always, please reply to this email or contact us at our website if you have any questions.

If you do not receive a confirmation email from us, your registration or payment did not go through. Please contact us for help at tibiarecorderduo or try again.

Now, let the practicing begin!

Musically yours,
Tish & Frances

Voices of Music online lectures and interviews

Dear SFRS and Friends,

Voices of Music is pleased to introduce a special, one-of-a-kind online streaming program for 2020–2021: a series of talks and interviews with internationally acclaimed performers in historical performance. Our program will share rare insights into how our specialists prepare for and interpret the music they perform. You will meet virtuosos, conductors and VoM’s own music directors — all hosted with the warmth and generosity of a live VoM event.

Audience members may subscribe to all eight events in the series, or choose individual events of interest. Ticket buyers receive a private link to the Zoom webinars, and will also receive (afterwards) a private link where they can view the recorded discussion at their convenience for two months after the date of initial broadcast.

Subscribers will additionally receive invitations to several subscriber-only events.

In the event that it is possible to hold in person concerts, we will go ahead with our March 26-28, 2021, performances, but safety is our number one concern.

These events are $15 each, or $120 for the entire series. If you’d like to attend any or all of them, I’ll be happy to help you with our box office. They will be hosted by the Zoom application so it will be best if you download the application before you attend (go to Zoom.us to download).

For a complete list and description, go to the Voices of Music box office:

The first event is coming up this Sunday, October 11, 2020:

From Manuscript to Filmed Performance

Lecture by Voices of Music Directors Hanneke van Proosdij and David Tayler:
How do we decide to perform the music that we’re performing for our concerts? Where do we find the manuscripts? What kind of musicological decisions do we make? What steps do we need to take before we film our performances, and why? What is the rehearsal process like? What does filming day look like? A behind the scenes look at how Voices of Music creates their award-winning programs.
