Announcing a workshop at Zuckermann Harpsichords International in
Stonington, CT, June 13-16, 2008.
Once again, players, owners, builders, enthusiasts and aficionados of
early keyboard instruments are invited to gather in the beautiful
seaside village of Stonington, CT for three-and-a-half days of
immersion in the wondrous world of the harpsichord, clavichord, and
fortepiano. Musically, we're focusing on Bach and his sons.
We've changed the format somewhat from last year. The first full day
(June 14, 2008) will be composed of introductory sessions in building
and playing. The next two days will mostly follow two tracks,
allowing participants to concentrate more on either the "hardware"
(building and maintenance) of the instruments, or the "software"
(performance and performance practice) of the music.
Faculty for the 2008 ZHI Workshop:
Richard Auber, owner of Zuckermann Harpsichords International and
Carol lei Breckenridge, Farver Professor of Music at Central College,
Ed Kottick, Professor Emeritus University of Iowa, author, scholar,
Tatyana Nivina, artist, graduate of the State School for Fine Arts
and Design, Kieve, Russia;
Janet K. Smith, award-winning public relations consultant, Kansas City, Mo.;
Peter Watchorn, born in Australia, now based in Boston, Mass:
performer, scholar, builder, and recording artist.
