Online baroque ornamentation course
Ornamentation in the Baroque
For all levels -Beginning of July – Online
We dive into ornamentation for a slow movement with Johann Joachim Quantz’s help. Quantz left us an example adagio constructed from basic building blocks. For each building block he notated several ornaments that work. These same building blocks can be found everywhere in baroque music!
On the first day of the course we will work on learning options for one building block, and how to fill up intervals. We are using Quantz’s own Adagio!
