Master Class in choir conducting with Robert King
It is important that participants broaden their knowledge of what lies behind conducting a choir, as well as improving their actual technical skills. We will do lots of technical work, improving skills and actually directing the choir. We will “add value” to the course by widening the topics to include the following areas as well:
  • Choosing a good edition
  • Structuring a rehearsal
  • Gesture and communication
  • Score preparation
  • Flexibility and using ears
  • Diplomacy
  • Text and language

Kursdatoer: 7th to 12th of July 2015 – 10 to 13 h.

We will work on music in three languages: Latin, English and German, and suggest these works below (English, German & French music from five centuries):

Tallis: O nata lux de lumine
Byrd: Haec dies quam fecit  Dominus
Bach:  Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden, BWV 230  (from the Six Motets)
Händel: All empires upon God depend (from Belshazzar)
Bruckner: Locus iste
Stanford: Beati quorum via
Walton: Set me as a seal upon thine heart
Duruflé: Domine Jesu Christe (from Requiem)
