Here’s how it works
WHAT: Our primary goal is the refreshment of the spirit with this in-person Rhine River Baroque Oboe Retreat. Nestled in the Rhine Valley, one of the most beautiful locations on this earth, our retreat has three main points of focus:
- ensemble work: chamber music, oboe band and important orchestral literature for Baroque oboes
- reed making skill development and strategies
- Baroque dance instruction and its application in performance
We will hold this seminar at 415Hz. You are welcome to bring your 392Hz – 442Hz instruments for reed support and 1 on 1 coaching sessions. We cover all aspects of reed making from the tube to the finished reed, with and without machines.
While we will cover specific works in the repertoire (including important orchestral works), we hope you will also bring your own literature.
LANGUAGE: English and German spoken
FOR WHOM: This retreat is optimal for professional, aspiring and amateur oboists who thirst for in-person contact and want to increase their freedom, ease, agility, and intense musical expression with historically informed performance practice on Baroque oboes.
If you are new to Baroque oboe or in need of an instrument, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can determine if we can meet your personal needs in the scope of this retreat.
