April 28 – May 6, 2018, Putney, Vermont, USA: Artist in Residence, Yellowbarn
April 28 - May 6
The six Partitas for harpsichord are the last of Bach’s keyboard dance suites, stretching the formal structures of his French and English Suites that preceded them. They present new technical and musical challenges for the interpreter as well. Enrico Elisi will be in residence at Yellow Barn discussing the upcoming recording of Partitas 1 and 6 which will occur in Italy in 2018. A particular focus of his residency is the various possibilities of ornamentation and articulations in those works. Building on his own interpretive insight as well as historical evidence, he will also study selected ornaments and articulations used by keyboard players who have previously recorded this repertoire, creating a compendium of possibilities that can be drawn upon in an improvisatory way.
