|Event||Dalcroze Day with Alice Jones|
|Venue||Shap Village Hall,
|Description||Join Alice Jones for a day of Dalcroze. In her words:
"Dalcroze Eurhythmics, developed by Émile Jaques-Dalcroze in Switzerland at the beginning of the twentieth century, is an exciting and unique approach to learning and interpreting music that explores musical concepts through the body. The three main components are rhythmic movement, ear training and improvisation.
In this workshop we will be focusing mainly on the rhythmic element. The Dalcroze approach helps to develop ensemble and musicianship skills needed for orchestral playing in an engaging and all-inclusive way. It encourages more physical awareness in players whilst developing internal pulse and reaction time. During the session we will play some fantastic repertoire by Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky and Ravel and discover their use of rhythm, harmony, phrasing and other musical elements through the Dalcroze approach. The workshop will be physically active at times but not much more than playing a musical instrument!"
Whilst engaging in this approach, we'll be exploring some great repertoire, including Mendelssohn's String symphony no 4 (with parts for wind and brass too), Tchaikovsky's Nocturne for Cello and orchestra (with Alice as soloist) and Ravel's stunning orchestration of his own Alborada del Gracioso.
