On the 11th and 12th of July, the week end after the shakuhachi ESS summer school in Paris, Gunnar Jinmei Linder will conduct a workshop in the town of Montlhéry (20 km from Paris). The exact location will be given soon.
This edition of the Paris workshop of Gunnar will be particular for several reasons:
- The first day (saturday) will be devoted to a "master class" on sokaku reibo. This means that the attendees are supposed to have studied the piece before. Each attendee will have the oportunity to play some extracts of the piece and will receive comments from Gunnar. The idea is thus to go deeper than in classical workshops by having personalized advices on sound production, kinko style, particular techniques of the piece etc... The piece will be taught during the paris ESS summer school which will be sufficient to attend to the master class. If you do not attend to the ESS summer school I can take care of going through the piece with you (as long as we can meet before in Montlhéry) so that you have enough material to prepare the master class. You may also, of course, prepare it through skype lessons directly with Gunnar.
- The second day (sunday) will be devoted to the study of the jiuta yugao. We will have the pleasure to play with Akari Sagara on the koto and shamisen. This day will be in a classical workshop format.
- The regular price for the two days is 140 euros but Gunnar offers an exceptionnal reduction to the attendees of the Paris ESS summer school who will pay only 60 euros for the two days. Attending to one day is also possible (75 euros regular price - 35 euros for paris ESS summer school attendees).
