Con la mente e con le mani

Teaching and Learning the Art of Counterpoint on the Keyboard (1585-1671)


Smarano - Trento, Italy

18th - 20th November 2010


An International Conference for discussing

Counterpoint and Improvisation

The Conference will be focused on Counterpoint teaching and learning in the Early Seicento. We would like to explore the link between Music Theory and Practice on the keyboard. Improvisation is the working tool for learning music structures. Different scholars will confront themselves with the topic, mixing up various perspectives. 
Every lecture will be followed by a working seminar, stimulated by a discussant. 
The final day will be organized at Trento Conservatory, with workshops and panel discussions.
