 This course - with a very strong emphasis on chamber music - offers professional instruction on the above instruments for early music enthusiasts and modern instrumentalists with an interest in Baroque and Renaissance music.

 The instruments of the Orpheon Foundation, consisting of violins, violas, violoncellos, violones and viola da gambas from the 16th to the 18th C., restored to original condition, will be made available to interested players of modern instruments. This is a unique opportunity for musicians to get acquainted with these old instruments and their repertory. During the course the participants will prepare a concert to be performed at the end of the course.
