SAN DIEGO COUNTY RECORDER SOCIETY WORKSHOP Molto Espressivo! (or How to Turn a Phrase)
What makes for a musical performance? For expressive playing? There is always something more to say… or a better way to say it! When presented with soaring melodies, clashing dissonances, or intricate rhythms, we will focus on tone, articulation, breathing, musical weight, and maybe even a little vibrato, to capture the essence of each composer’s expressive vision. Musical selections may include works by Albinoni, Holst, Steve Marshall, Phil Neuman, Purcell, Sieg, Victoria, Vivaldi, and more! Based in Central Illinois Lisette Kielson performs as soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player throughout the Midwest. Past President of the American Recorder Society, Lisette directs the Collegium Musicum at Bradley University, serves on the faculty of the Whitewater Early Music Festival and as Music Director of the ARS Chicago Chapter, and teaches at workshops throughout the country, including most recently at SFEMS, Next Level Recorder Retreat, Columbia Gorge Early Music Retreat, and Amherst Early Music Festival. Lisette holds Bachelor and Master Degrees in flute performance from Indiana University and a post-master’s Diploma in recorder performance from The Royal Conservatory of The Hague, the Netherlands. Lisette is a member of L’Ensemble Portique, Peoria Bach Players, and Chicago Recorder Quartet. She has recorded with Centaur Records as well as with her own label.
