May Class Newsletter, Vol. 11, No. 4

Dear Students and Parents,

What a terrific performance class today! As promised, here are the links to the historical, tradition-based examples for Bloch’s Nigun, Monti’s Czardas, and Bacewicz’s Oberek. This is a curious film  of Polish folk dancers on a ship in 1963 dancing the Oberek.

The Original Village Music from the Upper-Mures Region project discs are out of print, and I can’t find examples on Youtube. But there is interesting background in the editorial review at this Amazon link:

I’d be happy to lend you my copy. I’d also be glad to lend our copies of the following books. It is a list from the Brain-Pickings website of recommended books about music, emotions, and the brain.

Happy learning!
