THE MASTERCLASS
Creativity and Tradition, from the Balkans to Jazz

Being musicians of the present time made of ancient knowledge . 
Through the exploration of elements of traditional music from the world of the Near East, this masterclass will face in a practical way the universal dichotomy of originality and tradition. An experience in the diversity of languages and in how to establish stylistic connections through creativity, with particular focus on the varied sound world of the Balkans, from Serbia to Macedonia, up to Turkey and the Middle East. Specific technical and aesthetic issues necessary for understanding the music in question will be dealt with.

Between these:

  • Musical styles, territorial diversity, rhythms, repertoires and dances

  • Instrumental techniques, ornamentation and articulation

  • Encounter between the European tonality and the Middle Eastern modality

  • Notions of the Ottoman makam (modes) system

  • Improvisation in two different worlds: from jazz to taksim aesthetics

  • The universe of microtonality

Sound incursions and collaborations with the rich calendar of events of theUrbino Plays Jazz 2022 Festival.

ATTENTION: LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE
