Introduction to modal music for bowed string instruments Carlos Ramírez
This seminar is focused on bowed instruments, though open to all musicians interested in approaching the diverse modal music styles of regions such as Greece, Turkey, the Middle East and the Balkans.
We will learn melodies from these musical traditions and analyze the different modes and rhythmic structures of their classical and folk repertoires.
We will study ornamentation, aesthetics and basic phrasing, as well as notions of improvisation, composition and orchestration.
