Students on the course will be divided into groups by instrument; recorder players will be also divided by level.

The Recorder Master class led by P. Holtslag will focus on Interpretation of Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, modern and educational solo recorder pieces (without continuo). His class will have about ten active students. Every student accepted will have a minimum of 3 forty-minute solo lectures. The student can choose from the list of pieces to be sent after application or found on our website. There is a possibility of ensemble or chamber music coaching, if the students form groups on the spot. Please, take chamber music repertoire that you want to study with you.  

K. de Witt will work with soloists or members of existing ensembles, there is no special theme for the class this year, modern pieces would be welcome.

J. Rokyta is not only a very good recorder player, but he plays also cimbalom. In his class the students can have lessons with both instruments, detailed schedule will depend on number of applying students.

For the first time we are opening a Pan-flute class led by L. Rokyta. Even beginners can register –Liselotte will bring with her several flutes, which can be used throughout the course. She is also willing to arrange purchase of the instrument, if the need arises. Since the number of people without their instrument is limited, register as soon as possible.

Recorder ensemble class led by J. Gundersen will welcome especially intermediates interested in larger and smaller ensembles. Well coordinated ensembles are welcome, individuals will be included into ensembles. Registered applicants can look forward to a lot of joint playing. It would be helpful for planning work in the class, if you could add to the application, which flutes you will be bringing to Prachatice.

Children’s class in the first week will be led by M. Devátá, a young lecturer with wide experience in teaching children. Players older than ten years can register – it is expected that these children will be advanced, able to work independently and willing to take part in a recorder ensemble. Organizers together with teachers will contact all registered children and reserve a right to turn applicants down.

Early singing class led by Rebecca Stewart will focus on Renaissance and Medieval repertoire. The tutor expects that the applicants can sing on professional or semi-professional level and they are prepared to work with original scores which will be sent in advance.

The programme of the Lute class by E. Mascardi will be specified later according to applicants’ interest.

An excellent English player and composer A. Davis has a real treat for us – students in his class will have the opportunity to study Alan’s solo and ensemble compositions. Scores will be sent to those interested in advance. Recommended!

A Pedagogical class led by J. Kvapil invites all prospective participants, especially recorder teachers. In co-operation with other teachers we will attempt to suggest approaches toward pedagogical work with beginners and also advanced learners. Class work will include shared technical, ensemble and sample lessons and also lectures.

Existing mixed chamber ensembles can also apply. Second week will be particularly suitable for them when the members of Florilegium, teachers of harpsichord, violin and cello will be also giving tuition in chamber playing.

The precise timetable and programme for the classes will be determined by the number and level ofplayers applying, but in any case every student will have at least two independent forty minute classes.

In the evenings, participants on the course will be able to play chamber music without coaching. During the course the teachers will give concerts (dates to be confirmed) and at the end of the course there will be a concert of participants.

In order for us to be able to put students into the correct classes we would like to ask all applicants to send, together with their application, a short list of compositions that they have played recently and a short musical c.v. I hope that we will be able to meet your requirements as closely as possible but it may happen that it will not be able to include you in the exact class you would like. We will decide this, however, after we have received all applications, i.e., in May 2003. We will let you know by the end of May which class you will be actively participating in. There is no limit to the number of passive participants.

Course participants will be accommodated in the Domov mládeže Střední pedagogické školy in Prachatice (Zlatá stezka 139). Classes will take place in the school building, approximately 5 minutes by foot. The concerts will take place in the Prachatice church.

Prachatice is in Southern Bohemia, c. 30 km east of České Budějovice, 130 km south from Prague, 200 km north-east of Munich and 200 km north-west of Vienna.

The town is fascinating primarily because of its large medieval fortifications, entrance gate with battlements, dominant late Gothic church, the Old Town-Hall with inner porticos and a number of Renaissance buildings which bear the names of the most celebrated townspeople from Prachatice.

Prachatice can be reached by train or bus, also by car or on foot. On request we can find out connections from Prague or České Budějovice.
