LSA Seminar & Lute Festival 2008Retrospective
The members of the outstanding faculty are listed below (with their names linked to brief biographies), together with pictures from many of the courses they taught and the programs of the concerts they performed, including photographic coverage and MP3 audio in most cases. The concert music ranged from 14th century chansons to very recent compositions. The courses covered a wide range of topics, including perspectives on lute repertory and the history of stylistic changes in many countries of Europe from the 15th century through the 18th century. Classes and private coaching were also be provided for playing technique, from beginner through advanced levels, for solo or ensemble performance, and for the accompaniment of singers either from basso continuo or with a completely realized part. In addition, Ray Nurse delivered a stimulating series of lecture-demonstrations on the music of John Dowland. Photographic summaries of the many other activities are also under construction.
