Viennese Masters and Their Contemporaries
The New Esterházy Quartet offers historically informed perspectives on string chamber music of the Classical era. Participants will learn period-appropriate styles of articulation, bowing, fingering and phrasing. Workshop pitch will be at “Viennese” A=430hz, and participants will have the opportunity to try Classical-style bows and strings. In addition to the music of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven, we will explore the music of lesser-known, but equally talented composers in our coachings, rehearsals, and informal performances. The workshop is open to all ages and all skill levels. Individuals and groups are welcome to apply!
