Following the success of the Accademia Vivaldi summer school in July 2017, this year the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi has organised another “Accademia”, divided into eight advanced workshops devoted to the performance practice of music by the “Red Priest”. The three-day workshops are addressed to young musicians and singers.
With the participation of Italian and foreign students, five workshops have already been held from February to June: three taught by the soprano Gemma Bertagnolli were devoted to vocal sacred music, chamber singing and drammi per musica; the fourth with violinist Giorgio Fava dealt with the sonatas for one or two violins and basso continuo, while the fifth, taught by cellist Walter Vestidello, focused on the sonatas for cello and basso continuo. The last three workshops are scheduled for the autumn: the first will again focus on drammi per musica (24-27 October) and the last two will be devoted to the violin and cello concertos (14-17 November).
In addition to practical performing aspects, participants will be able to explore various theoretical aspects of Vivaldi’s compositions and their contexts by consulting reproductions of the autographs, manuscripts and prints, as well as the musicological publications preserved in the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi archive and library
