Description

The nyckelharpa is a stringed instrument whose strings are played with a bow. The pitch is changed with the “keys” of the keyboard. Resonance strings contribute to the special sound. Depending on the design, the instrument has one or more rows of keys.

The nyckelharpa is known to have existed since about 1350, and it was played in various European countries until the 17th century. Praetorius and Agricola wrote about this instrument describing it as a keyed fiddle. From the 17th century, it was used exclusively in Swedish folklore.

When one learns a classical musical instrument, practice with etudes helps with finding one’s own way to better playing technique, fluidity and speed.

To master the musical potential of the nyckelharpa, musicians now have a collection of exercises from the internationally renowned virtuoso Marco Ambrosini.

The studies are for both 3 and 4 row “Swedish” tuned instruments (sixth-fourth- fifth), as well as “continental” tuned nyckelharpas (fifth-fifth-fifth), the preferred choice for instruments from Central European manufacturers.

With this book, the author has provided a profoundly important piece of material for the growing nyckelharpa community. Combined with the work he presents in his CADENCE project and with this tutorial, he has laid a solid foundation on which the nyckelharpa can get the attention and exposure it deserves. A similar study book for alternative traditional instruments has probably never been offered.

All texts and explanations in this book in Italian, German and English!

Marco Ambrosini is a teacher of Ancient Music and nyckelharpa at the 'Academy Burg Fürsteneck' (D) at the Scuola di Musica Popolare di Forlimpopoli '(I), the two birthplaces of the' European nyckelharpa training ', as well as at the Conservatoire Intercommunal de Musique des deux vallées Milly la Forêt (F).

About the author:

Born 1964 in Forlì, Italy.

I studied violin (with A. Casagrande) and composition (with M. Perrucci) in the Musical Institute "G.B.Pergolesi" in Ancona and in the Conservatory "G. Rossini" in Pesaro. I played with the "Orchestra Filarmonica Marchigiana" and various chamber orchestras, ensembles of early, baroque and contemporary music.

In 1982 I founded, together with Peter Rabanser, the international ensemble Oni Wytars, and I still perform with this group. I've performed as a soloist since 1990 for the Clemencic Consort in Vienna, and since 1991 I am the artistic director (with Katharina Dustmann) of the Studio Katharco - Sound:Creations.

I debuted as a soloist and nyckelharpa player in the theatre "Alla Scala" in Milan, in concerts for the Royal Swedish Concert Agency, the Alte Oper Frankfurt, the Philharmony in Cologne, Berlin, Moscow and with the Camerata Nordica.

Together with Carlo Rizzo, Jean-Louis Matinier, Valentin Clastrier and Michael Riessler I've participated in numerous concerts and radio recordings of jazz music. I was chosen by the German radio SWF as newcomer and composer for the New Jazz Meeting 1993.

In recent years I participated in numerous radio, television and CD productions (more than 150), as a solo artist, composer or member of ensemble Oni Wytars (Germany), Els Trobadors (Spain), Unicorn, Accentus, Clemencic Consort, Armonico Tributo (Austria), Ensemble Kapsberger (Rolf Lislevand-Norway), Camerata Nordica (Sweden), Jean-Louis Matinier, Michael Riessler and others.

I am an ECM-artist as soloist, SONY/DeutscheHarmoniaMundi with the Ensemble Oni Wytars

I am active as a teacher:
•regular courses: Scuola di Musica Popolare di Forlimpopoli (IT), Academy of Burg Fürsteneck (DE)
•workshops and master classes: Musikhochschule Trossingen (DE), Escuela Superior de Musica, Artes e Espectáculo do Porto (PT) and University of Nanchang (China)
