Musikfest Bremen Atelier – with this concept, three international academy projects will once again take place: World-renowned artists associated with the festival will work on special repertoires with selected young musicians from all over the world in one-week Ateliers.
The Atelier »Katharinas Hofmusik V - Una serenata italiana« is led by a team of tutors led by Alfredo Bernardini and Alessandro Quarta. In addition to a concerto by Johann Friedrich Fasch, who was Kapellmeister at Katharina's court in Zerbst for many years, they will also be working on a rarity: Giovanni Battista Bononcini's serenata »Proteo sul Reno«, which was first performed in Vienna in 1703. This is the first time that the Atelier's focus has been extended to the operatic repertoire of the early 18th century.
The Belgian baroque trombonist Wim Becu will lead the Atelier »Wege zu Bach II«. It will centre around the significant international heritage of European music around the equally distinctive instruments of Arp Schnitger, using the Schnitger organ in Ganderkesee. Here the italian influences of Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli in Venice and their echoes in the vocal-instrumental work of German composers which were formative for Johann Sebastian Bach will be examined.
CANCELLED: The Atelier »The Art of Improvisation by Yaron Herman« focuses on the mastery of the technical and mental prerequisites that are elementary to improvisation. The Israeli-French pianist Yaron Herman maintains an unparalleled style of improvisation by spontaneously combining jazz with Middle Eastern sounds, European classical music and elements from pop music. Together with the French clarinettist Paul Meyer, he will teach participants important foundations to enhance their musical expression through the practice of improvisation.
