This course is intended for students and graduates of violoncellos built according to historical construction. Besides, musicians with little experience in historical performance practice who want to gain more experience are welcomed. The main focus of single lessons lies on the repertoire of the 17th and 18th century. We will concentrate on Basso Continuo parts in order to get a comprehension of the solo literature for violoncello. Moreover, there will be the possibility to have a short look at the classic as well. This course will provide the opportunity to elaborate questions about instruments, pitch, literature and sources.
