Lythe Chamber Music will run its second summer course from 26-30 July 2015.
Joining the tutor team alongside Jane Booth and John Irving is James Brookmyre who will be coaching recorders. James is particularly keen on early 17th-century repertoire, and will be happy to explore works from Castello through to Corelli, Bach, Handel, Telemann and beyond.
In addition to working on your repertoire in detail from a historical performance perspective, exploring the magnificent keyboard instruments of local builder Johannes Secker (who will once again be demonstrating the mechanics of early keyboards (clavichord, harpsichord, fortepiano),
and enjoying the magnificent scenery of the North Yorkshire coastline at Lythe, there will be visits to two local craft gallery spaces in Sandsend and East Barnby for our concerts in intimate domestic settings. Then there’s the spiritual magic of St Oswald’s church – a fabulous venue for music-making.
This year we will be able to look in more detail at chamber music, both duos and small ensembles. We are happy to receive applications from pre-formed recorder/ woodwind ensembles. In addition to John and keyboard students on the course, we are fortunate in 2015 to have a very experienced official course accompanist, Dr Peter Bullett, formerly of St Paul’s School.
