This week has been one of the best during my time in Alicante. Every class has had so much information to absorb and as a performer, every lesson was an overview of the history of the piece, the mannerisms of the time when it was composed, the essence and character of the composition. I think working with this phenomenal artist and teacher has shed some light into the true interpretative character of Baroque and Renaissance music. And in the words of Mr. Paul O’dette, A.K.A. Baroque Rock Star, “There is no such thing as bad music, only uninspired performances.”
Here are some photos of the amazing week I spent working with him on my transcriptions of Soler’s music and a Dowland Galliard.
