The course

The 6th International Study Week of Trecento Music will be held in the city of Arezzo from  July 10th  to  18th , 2022: a  course specializing in medieval music under the expert guidance of Kees Boeke (Ensemble Tetraktys, fiddle, recorder), Claudia Caffagni (Ensemble laReverdie, medieval lute, medieval notation), Jill Feldman (voice) and Claire Piganiol (medieval harps,  portative organ).

We offer courses in fourteenth-century musical notation, analysis and use of instrumentation, with special emphasis on the relationship between poetic text and music. On a practical level, courses are held for medieval ensembles including voice, medieval lute and harp, fiddle, organetto and recorders.

The theme of this edition will be the works of Andrea da Firenze (c.1350-1415), a contemporary and friend of the more famous Francesco Landini. His fascinating and original music is all preserved in the famous Squarcialupi Codex.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This year for students under 26 years of age there will be a 200€ scholarship, reducing the course fee to 195€ !! Like in previous years, the Study Week of Trecento Music will take place in the Church of San Pier Piccolo, part of a former Benedictine monastery, in the heart of the city of Guido Monaco.

Repertoire

The course is conceived for all students who wish to deepen their understanding of medieval repertoire while developing their skills in performance. The choice this sixth year has fallen on the works of Magister Frater Andreas Horghanista de Florentia, commonly known as Andrea da Firenze.

About Andrea da Firenze: 

Since Andrea was a member of the Servite religious order, whose records have largely survived intact, more is known about his life than is usually the case for fourteenth-century composers. He entered the order in 1375, though at what age is not known. One of his first activities within the order was to carry out a commission to build an organ for the Servite house in Florence, for which he hired Francesco Landini as a consultant. Among the surviving records are the receipts for the wine that the two consumed during the three days it took to tune the instrument.

 

Evidently he and Landini were successful, for in 1387 Andrea received a similar commission to build an organ for Florence Cathedral. A commission recorded in 1382 for a "Maestro Andrea" to build an organ in Rieti, between Florence and Rome, may have been his as well, but has not been conclusively identified. The two men were evidently close friends, from the evidence of their time together, as well as the references found in their music.

Andrea was also active within his order as an administrator. In 1380 he became prior of the Florentine Servite monastery, SS Annunziata; in 1393 he took on the additional role of prior of the monastery in Pistoia. From 1407 to 1410 he led the entire Servite order in Tuscany.

All of Andrea's surviving music with reliable attribution is in the genre of the ballata. Thirty are known, with eighteen being for two voices and twelve for three; in addition, one ballade in French may be his work, based on stylistic similarities and a contemporary attribution of it to a name similar to his. The main source for his work is the Squarcialupi Codex, which also includes, in the section containing Andrea's music, a colorful illustration of a man playing an organ, probably Andrea himself.

The two-voice ballate are usually for two singing voices; two of them include an instrumental tenor. Not all of the three-voice ballate have text in all three voices, and the third voice sometimes may have been played on an instrument.

 

Compared to Landini's music, in which refinement, elegance, and a memorable melodic line were the clear goals of the composer, Andrea's music is dramatic, restless, and sometimes disjunct, and includes sharp dissonances to highlight certain passages in the text.

          claudia Budapest 2015Claudia Caffagni was born in Bologna into a musical family. She started studying the lute with her father Mirco at the age of thirteen and later with Federico Manicola. From the beginning of her musical education, she has held a deep interest in problems of performance practice in repertoire that covers the wide range of early music from the Middle Ages to the Baroque.

          She obtained her diploma in Lute performance in 1989 at the Royal College of Music in London, where she studied with Jakob Lindberg. She then specialized in German baroque lute repertoire for a year at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis with Hopkinson Smith. Apart from her practical studies, she became particularly interested in the sources, notation and treatises of medieval repertoire especially. In 1984, she founded her Ensemble LaReverdie, one of the most important groups internationally active in the reconstitution of pre-renaissance music. With this ensemble she has performed at the most prestigious festivals of all Europe. She has recorded sixteen CDs for ARCANA, in co-production with WDR. All CDs have obtained prizes including the Diapason d’Or de l’Année 1993, and "Finalist" in the 2010 and 2013 Midem Classical Awards, Early Music.

          She recently published an article entitled "Omaggio a Johannes Ciconia. Marce Marcum imitaris: un modello per i mottetti di Ciconia" for the magazine Marcinum, 2012. A new article will come entitled "A new edition of the Italian Trecento motet Marce, Marcum imitaris" for the Journal of the Alamire Foundation.

          To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Ensemble LaReverdie (1986-2006) she prepared a new critical performing edition of Guillaume Du Fay's Missa Sancti Jacobi, directly transcribing the Mass from its main manuscript source, the Codex Q15 from the Bologna, Civico Museo Bibliografico Library. It was presented in 2014 for the "Premio Luigi Gaiatto" promoted by the Fondazione Ugo e Olga Levi where it received an honorable mention.

          Claudia has been a teacher of Early Music performance practice at the Conservatory "G. Tartini" in Trieste and has held seminars and courses in lute and medieval music in Italy and abroad. Since 2005 she has taught international early music courses in Urbino, Parma, at the Accademia Internazionale di Musica (Scuola Civica) in Milan.

          Claire Piganiol

          Claire

          After starting her musical education on the piano, Claire Piganiol studied recorder and modern harp in the Conservatoire de la Vallée de Chevreuse near Paris (France), where she also discovered historical harps during the course of her studies. Her fascination for these rarely played instruments led her to musical studies in Milano, Toulouse and Basel, where she obtained a Master in early harps in 2012.

          A Master in instruments from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance directed by Kees Boeke at the Musikhochschule Trossingen allowed her to specialize in this repertoire. Academic studies in history and in musicology (Maîtrise in Université Paris-Sorbonne, France) gave her the opportunity to start research work on the iconography, organology and playing techniques of her instruments.

          Claire participates in several ensembles in France and abroad: ensembles Roselis, Isabella, Tetraktys, Gilles Binchois, Les Riches Heures, Centre de musique baroque de Versailles, I Ragazzari, Celacanto, Kesselberg…

The Ensemble Duvinsela, with whom she plays the double harp, has won the first prize of the Biagio Marini competition in August 2014.

          She is professor of historical harps at the CNR of Besançon and regularly leads introductory courses and workshops for early instruments; she is a member of the faculty of the International Course of Medieval Music Performance in Besalú, Spain, and the Laboratory for Historical Harps in Rangendingen, Germany.

          Arezzo

          A city of ancient origin, Arezzo became an important Etruscan and Roman center, home of the Christian diocese as early as the fourth century. It was occupied by the Lombards in the late sixth century A.D. and strongly influenced by this population.
          In the Middle Ages Arezzo became a powerful free city, often governed by its bishops, who were Counts of the Holy Roman Empire. It was at war with Siena, but especially with Florence, who subdued the city in 1384. Since this date, except for two extended rebellions in 1502 and 1529 to 1530, its history merges with that of the dominant city and then with that of Tuscany.
          The present historical center retains all the charm of the illustrious past, and its monuments are enriched by the works of great medieval and Renaissance artists, such as Cimabue, Piero della Francesca, Andrea della Robbia and Giorgio Vasari.
          Arezzo, the birthplace of Guido d'Arezzo as well as of the great poet Francesco Petrarca, is also internationally known as the natural stage for a famous movie: the most beautiful sights of its historical area have been used as the setting of some scenes in Roberto Benigni's film "La Vita è bella”, winner of three Academy awards in 1999.
          Modern and industrious Arezzo is a city of art of the past and present, where the ancient flavours of the cuisine go hand in hand with quality artisanship in the goldsmith tradition.
          Arezzo, the city of the Saracen Joust, the Antique Fair, and the "Guido d'Arezzo" International Choral Competition.
          Arezzo, a gem set among the rolling Tuscan hills and the birthplace of famous personalities: as the distinguished Italian poet Giosuè Carducci said: "Arezzo would be enough to illustrate the glory of Italy".

          polifonicoCHORAL COMPETITION "Guido d'Arezzo"
          24-27 August 2022

          The choral competition Guido d'Arezzo had its first edition in 1952. The competition is named after Guido Monaco, famous citizen of Arezzo and the father of modern musical notation that is still in use today. Currently the event consists of a National and an International Competition. The international competition is part of the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing along with choral competitions in Maribor (Slovenia), Debrecen (Hungary), Tours (France), Varna (Bulgaria) and Toulouse (Spain). The winning choir of the National Competition has the right to participate in the International Competition the following year. The winner of the International Competition "Guido d’Arezzo” has the right to participate in the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing, contending with the winners of the six other international choral competitions for the prestigious global title.

          saracinoTHE "GIOSTRA DEL SARACINO"
          September 4th 2022

          The Giostra del Saracino is the most compelling and characteristic folk show of Arezzo. The Joust involves representatives of the city's quarters, dressed in magnificent medieval costumes. The four districts are distinguished by different colours: red-green for Porta Crocifera; white-green for Porta S. Andrea ; yellow-blue the Porta S. Spirito ; yellow-crimson the Porta del Foro . After a colorful procession in the streets and city squares, all come together in a packed Piazza Grande in a colorful procession of musicians, flag bearers, horses, knights and damsels, to watch the spectacular display of the Flag-Wavers, which anticipates the beginning of real Joust itself. From the bottom of the square, while the drums roll, the giostratore forces his horse into gallop and with his spear he strikes the 'Saracen', the shape of Buratto holding the flail, which shows the score. After the eight established runs, a ranking is fixed , and the winning district is given a golden spear.
