Dartington International Summer School 2013

I am delighted to be giving a lecture about David Munrow and his contribution to the early music revival on the 28th July 2013 at The Dartington International Summer School. George Malcolm invited Munrow to play bassoon at Dartington in the mid 60s and the summer school provided him with important performance opportunities in his early career.

My Lecture will discuss Munrow's early musical influences (including Peru) before moving on to contrast Munrow's approach to performance practice with that of Musica Reservata. It will also survey two of Munrow's talks 'vocal vibrato' and 'What Should It All Sound Like?' possibly given by Munrow at Dartington during the summer of 1969.
