Masterclass on Polyphony, from the late sixteenth century to the early eighteenth century

Date: Place: Federazione Cori Italiani Chorus Inside (CHIETI)

The Masterclass is aimed at singers and choir directors.

Theoretical and practical study on correct breathing and good pronunciation of the text, in view of the concertation and execution of polyphonic music with and without accompaniment.

The Masterclass on polyphony from the late sixteenth to the early eighteenth century, is structured in 2 days for a total of 10 hours of study.

We will start with an introduction on the fundamentals of correct breathing and on the right way to use the breath and the muscle chains that control it, even in vision of long successions of notes and musical phrases to be supported and managed vocally.

We will then continue with the study of the pieces chosen for the Master which will then be examined and concerted in line with the introductory part analyzing the phrasing, the use of vowel weights (both that of the vowels and consonant sounds), the juxtaposition of the "winds" and the relationship between "tactus" and the holding of physical and mental energy.

The pieces studied during the Master are: Stabat Mater (Stefano Draghi), Salve Regina (Virgilio Mazzocchi), Ad Dominum Tribularer (Antonio Lotti).

Each student will participate in the Master having previously studied the songs and specifically their voice in order to work at their best in the course time.

The following pieces are proposed as a matter of personal and class listening in order to carry out a work of comparison between pieces by different authors who set the same text to music: Gaude Maria, Heinrich Schutz – Ad Dominum Tribularer, Augustino Agazzari – Stabat Mater Dolorosa, Juan Francés de Iribarren – Stabat Mater Dolorosa.

Of these will be provided the scores.
