This popular day course returns and offers the opportunity for violinists or violists to try (perhaps for the first time) the wonderful sonorities of the viola d'amore, and to appreciate its possibilities. The course is tutored by virtuoso viola d’amore player Elizabeth Watson who has given years to exploring this instrument, listening and playing at some half dozen international congresses of the Viola d’amore Society of America (later International). There will be instruments and music to explore and try from Biber, Bach, Telemann, Stamitz, Milandre, Casadesus, York Bowen, Roxburgh and others! The day will begin at 10am with suitable coffee breaks and lunch will be provided.
