This course will focus on the fast dances of Cretan music. Through playing a standard repertoire, we will analyze each style, focusing on the rhythmic nuances and specific ornamentations that characterize each of these styles.
This course is for all instrumentalists. Students should be comfortable on their respective instruments, able to focus on the repertoire, not technique. We will learn Maleviziotis pidixtos, Sousta, and Pentozalis.
