Workshop with Federspiel: Alpine music
Roots, phrasing, articulation, groove

Melodies and their accompaniment in folk music were and are often passed down orally. This means that they sound like different dialects and are often difficult to put into notes. Listening to each other, imitating and experimenting play an important role in grooving together. It is good to know where the roots of a piece lie and how exactly it is articulated and phrased. Together with Federspiel, the world of alpine music is explored.

Target group: Woodwind and brass players
Level: beginners to advanced
What to bring: Your own instrument.
max. 12 participants per group

10.30 - 11.30 a.m. or 12.00 - 1.00 p.m.
