'Making the stage your home' (with Bobby Rootveld)

Bobby Rootveld taught this workshop in over 30 countries in Europe and Asia.

Ensemble Workshop Salamone Rossi (with Duo NIHZ)

Salamone Rossi was a Jewish-Italian violinist and composer of the early Baroque. As a young man he made a name for himself as a violinist. In 1587 he was initially employed as a singer and violinist by Vincenzo I. Gonzaga at the court of Mantua, where his sister Europa was already active as a singer. He quickly rose to the position of Kapellmeister and made an appearance through instrumental and vocal compositions. Rossi was inspired by Claudio Monteverdi. Rossi also wanted to express his faith musically, in his own words "to glorify the beauty of King David's songs according to the rules of music". Through his friendship with Leone da Modena, who in 1605 allowed polyphonic choral music in the synagogue by a rabbinical decree, he was encouraged to compose appropriate religious compositions. The focus in this workshop are these compositions.

Ensemble Workshop The Wellerman goes Outlander (with Duo NIHZ)

Soon May the Wellerman Come, also known as Wellerman, is a New Zealand whaling song and shanty that was composed between 1860 and 1870. Outlander is an American fantasy television series directed by Ronald D. Moore. The first season begins shortly after the end of the war in Scotland in 1945, but is mostly about the 18th century afterwards. In this workshop, adaptations of the Wellerman and the Outlander theme song meet with songs from the UK.

Ladino music are the songs of the Spanish Jews, the Sephardi, who were expelled at the end of the 15th century. Above all, the Ladino songs tell of love and hope, despair and longing for a person or Jerusalem. In this workshop you get to know beautiful Ladino songs.
