[Harp-L] classical seminar at SPAH
My first SPAH, my first post here!
I'm giving a seminar at SPAH this year, and would like your input if
you plan to attend. I'm looking for some classical music players who
will bring a solo or two (and recorded accompaniment) to participate
in this seminar, described below.
I'm also looking for at least one each of chromatic, chord and bass,
to play an arrangement of a part of Beethoven's 7th Symphony. Each
part of this arrangement is modular; in other words, you'd only have
to learn about 16 bars of music to be able to put this together. The
music is easy, key of A minor, and s-l-o-w. I can send parts out
ahead of time. If interested, contact me off-list: tombaehr AT
verizon DOT net.
CLASSICAL MUSIC FOR THE NON-VIRTUOSO
Most of the recorded classical music I’ve heard on chromatic
harmonica has been way beyond my capabilities. They tend to contain
showpieces for virtuoso players. But I love classical music, and have
found several pieces that work for me.
Perhaps you have, too, I’d like us to share our experiences and our
music, by playing for each other and by playing a short, simple piece
or two together. Along the way, we can share techniques, sources for
music, information on venues, and accompaniment options, and anything
else that comes up.
Most importantly, we’ll explore style considerations in a discussion
that compares and contrasts the approach to classical music to other
genres, such as standards, jazz and rock.
Although it’s not required for this seminar, you’re welcome to bring
music and CD accompaniment to share with the other participants. I’ll
try to make this a hands-on workshop, so your input will be a real
plus. It’s also okay just to come and listen.
A novice on harmonica,Tom Baehr loves to play mostly classical music,
reflecting his musical training. He relies on his half-century
background on flute for inspiration.
