We are sorry that the travel restrictions caused by the pandemic have made it too difficult for students to attend this year's course. Alexis Droy has suggested keeping the same programme for next year when we hope travel will have returned to normal. Dates to be announced, but we expect it will be a similar period towards the end of August.


If you would like to be kept informed of dates please join our email list.

Christopher Stembridge online offer

Christopher Stembridge is a leading authority on Italian keyboard music of the renaissance and early baroque, known for his recordings and concert performances which are informed by his research into the music and instruments of the period. He is currently working with Bärenreiter Urtext editing the new anthology of Frescobaldi's organ and keyboard works. See www.baerenreiter.com for details, BA 8411 through BA 8415.

Christopher has made a unique offer during the pandemic which CAOS is posting on its website with his agreement:

“Since summer courses are not on this year, I would like to make myself available via skype to any serious player who wants to play and/or discuss anything in Frescobaldi, as long as they are really conversant with my edition so that we are on the same wavelength without my having to explain basics. There would be no charge.”

Anyone interested in taking this up please get in touch with CAOS Secretary James Little on james@cambridgeorganacademy.org
