Music is distributed months in advance so students can prepare
the material. Then, at the workshop, Carlo teaches finer points
of nuance, style, dynamics, and ensemble playing.
The workshop runs for three full days On the first day, Carlo teaches
a class on Technique and Exercises. The rest of the workshop is
devoted to Manodlin Orchestra. Music played at the workshop includes
works from all the major periods of mandolin music. We also play
repertoire for bowed instruments as well as contemporary compositions
for mandolin. Attendees of past workshops have enjoyed playing music
by Bach, Barbella, Bottacchiari, Calace, Denis, Falbo, Gervasio,
Giuliani, Kioulaphides, Mozart, Munier, Principe, Romaldi, Telemann,
and of course Vivaldi.
Attendees have unanimously praised Carlo and the workshop (see
some comments at right and below).
The workshop is intended for intermediate and advanced mandolinists.
Beginners may be accepted but should inquire as to suitablility
We hope you will join us in New York for the next workshop.
