on chalumeau and clarinetto d'amore
Lorenzo Coppola and the invited musicians will perform vocal and instrumental rarities by Graupner, Reinhardt, Vivaldi, Zelenka and Haydn played on Baroque instruments. The musical performance will be accompanied by Lorenzo Coppola’s short lecture presenting his unique historical woodwind instruments: the chalumeau and the clarinetto d'amore, predecessors of the modern clarinet.
Lorenzo Coppola is an internationally renown musician of historical clarinet. He studied from Eric Hoeprich at The Hague Royal Conservatory (The Netherlands) between 1991 and 1995. Since 2004, he has been a professor of historical clarinet at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya in Barcelona (Spain). He works with several groups playing on historical instruments, including the Freiburger Barockorchester, an orchestra without conductor, specialized in Classical and early Romantic repertoire. This experience brought him to lead workshops where he shares codes and historical strategies of handling rehearsals and concerts without a conductor. He recorded some of the most significant pieces of the clarinet repertoire with various groups such as the Ensemble Zefiro, the Ensemble Philidor, the Kuijken Quartett, the Freiburger Barockorchester for record labels like Harmonia Mundi, Callyope, Astrée-Auvidis, Challenge, and Sony.
