Viola da Gamba Society—New England
Fall Workshop 2016

On the Hexachord

Brandeis University
415 South St.
Waltham, MA 02453

Workshop Date:
Sunday October 16th, 2016


Music Director: Wendy Gillespie
Coordinators: Hannah Davidson and
James Williamson

Registration Deadline
September 20th, 2016


Hexachords, as opposed to octave scales, are at the root of renaissance music theory. But they are much more than that: they enter into musical works didactically, symbolically, secretly, and humorously. They stretch our technique and imagination and for our forebears, they sometimes called to mind specific people.

This workshop will explore the use of hexachords in music of the 16th and early 17th centuries, introducing the birth of “modern” harmony (the moveable hexachord), the soggetto cavato, and other slightly esoteric concepts, in a user-friendly way. Composers will range from Heinrich Isaac to Richard Mico.

There will be a place for everyone from beginners to advanced players in this workshop, since many of the pieces have one part that is much simpler than the others, and there will be a separate class for complete beginners if there is the demand.

Coaches, besides Wendy, will include Hannah Davidson, Loren Ludwig, and Sarah Mead, with Jane Hershey as contingency faculty.  We look forward to seeing you there.
