Friederike Heumann - viola da gamba/lirone
Friederike Heumann studied viola da gamba with Jordi Savall and Paolo Pandolfo at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Suisse) and completed her studies with a soloist diploma for early music. Nowadays, she tours both as solo artist and with her ensemble “Stylus Phantasticus” all around the world. Her multiple award-winning CD recordings are regularly celebrated by international critics. Friederike Heumann teaches viola da gamba and consort at the Conservatory for Music and Theatre of Munich and at numerous international master courses. Since summer semester 2020 she has been professor for historical chamber music for strings and viola da gamba at the Conservatory for Music of Würzburg. She is a jury member at international competitions for early music.
This course is aimed at music students, advanced beginners and after consultation, at modern string players (double bass players, cellists) who want to deal with historically informed performing practice. Solo repertoire: all relevant stylistic periods for viola da gamba; consort repertoire and chamber music: own proposals are welcome, inter alia, music for more players, scordatura gambas in tablature notation, Italian, French and English consort music and improvisation exercises for ostinato bass. Lirone players are explicitly welcome to this year’s renaissance and early baroque repertoire!!
