MASTERCLASS OF FANFARA AND ORCHESTRA BALKAN
 

Crossroads of peoples and cultures, in the Balkans resides an extremely rich and varied musical tradition, almost completely ignored in Italy.With the Trento project Balkan plays! an opportunity is offered to all those who want to get in touch and have direct experience with this musicthrough collective workshops where practice and oral transmission are the first two ingredients.

 

The workshops are aimed atprovide participants with the necessary tools to travel independently in the musical world of the Near Eastand acquire the skills to become members of an ensemble inspired by traditional Eastern European ensembles, from the “trubaci” fanfare to the “lautari” orchestras, up to the “panigiri” groups, the endless nights of music in the summer of the Aegean islands.

The groups work on the construction of a collective repertoire of traditional music from the Balkans, Romania, Turkey, Greece, Asia Minor and the Middle East.Thetechnical and aesthetic issuesspecifications necessary for understanding the music in question. Between these:  styles and territorial diversity;rhythms, repertoire and dances;ornamentation and articulation;specific instrumental techniques;encounter between the European tone and the Middle Eastern modality;notions of the Ottoman makam (modes) system;improvisation in the aesthetics of taksim; intonation and microtonality.
