Are you a harpsichordist who enjoys playing baroque chamber music and would like to be able to realise figured basses in a true baroque manner? This course aims to give a thorough grounding in continuo practice, letting you leave behind editorial realisations, and create your own stylish accompaniments. Alongside sessions that carefully and gradually introduce the essential theoretical and harmony concepts, you will also do a lot of playing, in small groups, sometimes accompanying a solo line. No prior experience with figured bass or formal music theory is required or expected. Participants should be keyboard players fluent in reading both treble and bass clefs.
