Lyra Baroque: Cornetto Workshop with Bruce Dickey
Time & Location
About the Event
Bruce Dickey is one of a handful of musicians worldwide who have dedicated themselves to reviving the cornetto – once an instrument of great virtuosi, but which lamentably fell into disuse in the 19th century. The revival began in the 1950s, but it was largely Bruce Dickey, who, from the late 1970s, created a new renaissance of the instrument, allowing the agility and expressive power of the cornetto to be heard once again.
This workshop/masterclass is open to ANYONE that is interested in learning the basics of cornetto playing. Common winds that take up cornetto are recorder, trumpet, oboe, and even voice!
