This unit of study presents students with an opportunity to learn the theory and to experience the nuts and bolts of historically informed performance (HIP). Today's performers need to be able to navigate their way through a wide variety of styles, genres and modes of performance. HIP is a growth area globally, which influences the style of performance of period and modern instrument ensembles and vocalists. Here in Australia, for example, the ACO requires its members to have a keen awareness of HIP conventions in repertoire ranging from 1600-1900. Students will explore readings from primary and secondary written sources, recordings (including historical recordings) and will learn how to apply their findings to repertoire spanning the high-Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods. Mini-lectures are combined with demonstrations of HIP style, peer-led discussions and practical workshops.
