CZECH VIOLA da GAMBA & LUTE SOCIETIES

First, a warning! There is another Website about a Lute Society which makes some wonderful claims that are sadly pure fantasy! The owner of the site tells us he is unable to change it as he no longer has access to it!!! It also has some accurate and interesting information about the lute.

Although in the past, the Society organised courses in making as well as many in playing these instruments, at present the activity of both branches of the Society is fairly dormant due to the apathy of the membership. On the positive side, there are several good gamba makers as well as lute makers. Special mention should be made of Petr Vavrous (gambas) and Jiri Cepelak (lutes) who have both  been very supportive to the work of the Society. However we do continue to lend out many instruments both gambas and lutes. The Society also lends out music and CDs.

Viola da Gamba Society

We have ceased organising courses because of the very poor support - at present one can expect two or maybe three students at a course - not enough to justify the organisation problems of funding. HOWEVER, there are TWO Summer Schools in the Czech Republic offering Gamba teaching this year, Jindrichuv Hradec (Jose Vazquez and a team of players) and Valtice (Michael Brussing), so there is plenty of opportunities for players.

It is also possible to study the gamba in Brno both privately with Vera Mikulaskova (Stojanova 6, 602 00 Brno  Tel: ++420 (0)5 43243657  e-mail: mailto:mikulask@phil.muni.cz  and also at the Masaryk University course with Peter Krivda  (e-mail:  mailto:ptrkrivda@hotmail.com).
