Fête au village!

2-day recorder workshop with Vincent Lauzer

An exploration of the festive music of the French Baroque with recorder player Vincent Lauzer. On the program: excerpts from Joseph Bodin de Boismortier’s Ballets de village and Nicolas Chédeville’s Saisons amusantes, a composer strongly inspired by Vivaldi’s famous music, which he sometimes shamelessly copied!


Wednesday July 3:

  • Workshop session 1, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Vincent will perform in the teachers’ evening concert

Thursday July 4:

  • Workshop session 2, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Cocktail-hour concert demonstrating the work accomplished, from 5:15 p.m. to 6 p.m.

This workshop is aimed at advanced recorder players and instrumentalists with good reading skills who wish to familiarize themselves with Baroque music. Emphasis will be placed on interpretation and ornamentation.

+ Instrumentalists wishing to join in will also be welcome (violin, viola, cello, flute, oboe, etc.).

The recorder workshop is included for participants enrolled in Week 1 of the summer music retreat.

We are currently looking into the possibility of opening this workshop to the public, either for one or both days.
