  • All about the Ensemble Singing Intensive with Emily Eagen | Amherst Early Music
    39 Emily Eagen talks about singing ealry chamber music and starting the new Ensemble Singing Intensive for the 2011 Amherst Early Music Festival Spurred on by the ever industrious Loren Ludwig we ve managed to make a long held dream a reality an intensive ensemble singing workshop at Amherst Early Music This is truly going to be an exciting summer with an incredibly faculty line up and an eager crop of partcipants As a singer who finds myself equally occupied with solo and ensemble singing in my daily life occupied more like addicted I have long hoped that we could build a program at AEM that allows singers to come and experience the joys of one on a part singing in an intensive program And how better to do this than in a beautiful summer location surrounded by some of the best musicians in the field with nothing more to do than make ensemble music with other singers 24 7 This new program called ESI seems like a natural outgrowth of the music making that is already happening at Amherst Early Music Those of us on staff at Amherst have often found ourselves up to our ears pun intended in vocal polyphony as we learn works for the week s lecture or for the faculty concerts Additionally the festival participants who pass by the concert hall before the evening s concerts usually stop by and sing a few madrigals outside with a circle of enthusiastic singers that usually grows in numbers throughout the week Also we singers hear tell of small gatherings here and there of recorder shawm and viol players sneaking off to gather in lounges and read through facsimiles late at night and wonder why we can t get in on the fun In all these ways ensemble

  • All about the Ensemble Singing Intensive with Loren Ludwig | Amherst Early Music
    singing There is a vast gorgeous repertory of one on a part vocal music from the late Medieval Renaissance and early Baroque periods roughly 1400 1700 that includes madrigals chansons masses motets and various sorts of partsongs A relatively small sliver of this music gets performed by vocal ensembles and even less of it gets performed one on a part As a viol player I find this situation sort of strange When viol players get together they play consort music the instrumental equivalent of madrigals motets and partsongs a lot of the so called viol consort repertory is made up of instrumental versions of English and Italian madrigals and motets In fact the reason lots of viol players play the viol is so that they can play one on a part music with each other I love playing consort music and even though I m not a particularly capable singer I love singing or trying to one on a part music So why isn t there more one on a part singing in the United States Of course it s not totally unknown There are groups like Lionheart Anonymous 4 New York Polyphony and others that perform and record one on a part polyphony Also madrigal singing is still a favorite activity of a shrinking group of dedicated enthusiasts But given the amount of great one on a part vocal polyphony that survives from centuries past music that was designed in most cases to be fun to sing why don t we hear more of it when singers congregate There is no shortage of singers and no shortage of music Ensemble music making creates community among its participants and needs that community to thrive ESI was designed to focus on one on a part ensemble singing to give singers a

  • What Makes The Baroque Academy Special | Amherst Early Music
    young emerging singers to gain experience performing a fully staged Baroque opera with period costumes dance and a full Baroque orchestra The continuo and orchestral musicians in the opera benefit tremendously from this experience as well getting to work on recitatives and arias and learning to manage all the special situations that arise when performing staged opera Special Topics And while some students devote much of their energy to the opera others get a chance to delve into special topics Last year we ran a class on French ornamented airs and brunettes for singers winds and continuo players This year we are considering a Caccini class for singers and harpsichordists We will tailor the special topics classes to the students that attend We make every effort to create a program that will challenge and excite everyone The Repertoire Each year we focus on a different geographic region And because the student level is so high we can work intensely on questions of style ornamentation and advanced ensemble playing This year we will perform Italian and Spanish music We will look at many of the big names Vivaldi Corelli Handel and also explore the experimental world of 17th Century Italy and Spain Castello Frescobaldi Fontana Cima Merula Soler and more And since this year we are performing an Alessandro Scarlatti opera we might put special emphasis on his secular cantatas and orchestral music in other classes throughout the day The Faculty We strive to make each year s festival match the music and student needs for that year By rotating faculty we are able to bring in experts of different musical styles For example since last year was French year we brought Ryan Brown to direct the opera production Ryan specializes in French 18th century opera and he runs the only
