The course is aimed at music students, Baroque violinists, and listeners. It is assumed that active participants will bring their Baroque violins
with them. Leila Schayegh will be assisted by Andreas Westermann on the harpsichord. Lessons will be organized on different levels and
mainly focus on solo works as well as chamber music from the early Baroque to the classical period. In addition, the course will also be
taught in separate groups in order to individually adapt the course programme to all participants. For the repertoire, you may submit
your own wishes, which Leila Schayegh will respond to if possible. The different styles of embellishments, e.g. “chin-off” playing as well
as the instrument position in the early Baroque repertoire, will be discussed, too. The master class will open with a convivial dinner
on July 15th, 2018, at 6 p.m. The closing concert will take place on July 21st, 2018, at 8.30 p.m.
