Con la mente e con le mani. Improvisation from ‘cantare super librum’ to partimenti rappresenta il secondo appuntamento di un ciclo sull’improvvisazione musicale nei diversi periodi storici. Questa manifestazione,  organizzata dall’Istituto per la Musica e dedicata alle pratiche improvvisative del Rinascimento e del Barocco, prosegue la riflessione iniziata nel novembre 2012 con il convegno Improvised Music in Europe: 1966-1976.

Dal 9 all’11 novembre 2013, con il coordinamento di Massimiliano Guido e Peter Schubert (McGill University, Montréal), avranno luogo una serie di eventi incentrati sull’uso dell’improvvisazione nell’insegnamento della teoria musicale oggi. Thomas Christensen terrà la lectio inauguralis, che sarà seguita da sessioni di studio sulla memoria, sulle pratiche improvvisative e sulla pedagogia. Interverranno Edoardo Bellotti, Bor Zuljan , Michael Callahan, Philippe Canguilhem, Giuseppe Fiorentino, Massimiliano Guido, Jean-Yves Haymoz, Stefano Lorenzetti, William Porter, Giorgio Sanguinetti e Peter Schubert. Durante il convegno la Fondazione Accademia Internazionale di Smarano, che è tra gli enti collaboratori, presenterà la propria attività didattica e di ricerca nel campo della musica per tastiera dell’epoca rinascimentale e barocca.
