PRACTICAL APPROACHES TO PERFORMANCE
PREPARATION

This seminar sets out a structured method which takes the practical musician from first viewing of a new, unknown work to its performance in the critical and public arena. Its five sections cover such issues as the manner of practice; the constructive division of practice time; practice procedures; practice away from the instrument; and psychological preparation for performance.

FROM EYES TO EARS: USING EDITIONS IN PERFORMANCE

A two-part seminar examining the ways in which editions are constructed and their use in the context of performance. No edition can convey the composer's intentions with completeness or with total accuracy: even those that are highly prescriptive leave some elements undescribed.; Such considerations as historical context (contemporary notational methods; the view the composer may have had of his own work in a wider musical and social-historical context; the contemporary physical characteristics of the instruments for which the work was composed) as well as an awareness of the composer's working methods (the musical environment in which the composer was working; the individual notational idiosyncrasies of the composer) must therefore be brought to bear by the performer upon the edition in order to prepare an interpretation of integrity.

 

The seminar will be illustrated with visual examples and audio extracts; and the audience will be encouraged to contribute through discussion during the course of the seminar.
