February 2018 Course

at Victoria House, Lyme Regis

Facsimile for Advanced Recorder Players

20th - 24th February 2018

Limited to a maximum of 12 players

Philip Thorby

Philip Thorby is well known as one of the country’s leading performers and teachers in the field of Renaissance and Baroque music. He founded and directed the ensemble “Musica Antiqua of London” which was at the forefront of research-based performance of renaissance music, a passion he is now exploring further with “Intrepid Academy”. He is Emeritus Fellow in Early Music at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London.

As a recorder player, Philip's interests range widely. Two areas of special interest are sixteenth-century divisions (elaborate instrumental works based on vocal originals) and the music of early eighteenth-century London.


About the course

The course is aimed at advanced players who would like to learn about playing music from facsimile and only a limited prior knowledge of facsimile is necessary.  For light relief, there will also be some playing sessions using conventional notation!

The course will start at 4.00pm on Tuesday 20th and will finish with lunch on Saturday 24th February.  Off road car parking is available from Tuesday morning if you want to arrive early and explore Lyme.


Prices are as follows:

Single occupancy    £485

2 players, sharing    £380 each

Couple sharing, one playing    £630

A £90 deposit is required per person on booking, with the balance to be paid at least one month before the course.
