It will take place from 19 to 25 July 2020.
URBINO MUSIC YOUNG is a course for young instrumentalists (from 7 to 18 years old) born within the prestigious Fima International Early Music Courses. Unique in its kind in Italy, it was born in 2013 with the idea of bringing young people closer to the ensemble music and the Baroque repertoire, with attention to the executive practice of the time. The ensemble music lessons, on which the course is mainly based, are flanked by the orchestra (divided into two groups according to age and instrumental level) and dance.
In a perspective that sees playing together as a fundamental means of musical and personal growth, the fulcrum of Urbino Music Young is an orchestral project, different every year and taken from the original repertoire, which sees all the participants involved in the end of course concert.
The teachers of Urbino Music Young, professionals experienced in music education and Baroque performance practice, work in teams following the stuents in the music groups together in the morning and in the orchestras in the afternoon.
Teachings and teachers:
baroque flute and oboe (teacher Ludovica Scoppola).
violin (teachers Ulrike Fischer and Paolo Piomboni)
viola da gamba (teacher Luciana Elizondo).
