A Castle, Dance and Viola da Gamba – Courses 2023
Enrolment is now open for the Academy’s Courses 2023: Renaissance Dance and Viola da gamba in the dreamlike setting of Castel Toblino in Trentino from 29 August to 2 September 2023.
In recent years, frescoes with musical subjects of exceptional importance have emerged in Castel Toblino, a historic complex dating back to the 12th century and since the 16th century the peripheral seat of the court of the prince-bishops of Trento. The Accademia di Musica Antica has decided to dedicate a series of teaching and study activities to this discovery as part of the 28th edition of the Euregiomusica Premio Bonporti – International Baroque Violin Competition. There is a scientific and artistic-musical collaboration with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Switzerland), a prestigious international centre for research and teaching of ancient music. Also with Artsemble (Italy-Austria), a viola da gamba group, and in synergy with the Associazione Culturale Castel Toblino for the tourist-cultural promotional aspects.
