Open masterclass Lorenzo Ghielmi

The Italian organist and harpsichordist Lorenzo Ghielmi will teach a master class for young, gifted harpsichordists and organists. Ghielmi is titular organist of the San Simpliciano church in Milan and has been widely acclaimed for his recordings both as a soloist and with ensembles. Spectators are welcome to attend this master class for free. 

The participating musicians will be tutored by Ghielmi in the repertoire from the Italian Renaissance up to the organ and harpsichord works of Girolamo Frescobadli. Girolamo Diruta’s Il Transilvano (Venice, 1593) will be singled out for special consideration. In addition to theoretical reflections on the technique of harpsichord- and organ-playing, this treatise also contains several remarkable compositions by Diruta.
