Alexander Weimann

Working Without a Net: The Art of Improvisation Alexander Weimann, Harpsichord

Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum Library
93 Pike St #307, Seattle, WA 98101 (Upstairs at Pike Place Market)

Enjoy an intimate evening of music presented jointly by Folio and Early Music Seattle. Alexander Weimann, keyboard virtuoso and Music Director of Seattle Baroque Orchestra, will present a performance exploring the lost art of improvisation. While improvisation was an everyday skill for musicians in the 18th century, it now plays virtually no role in a modern classical musician’s education or professional practice. Alex Weimann will connect the worlds of composition and improvisation by starting with works by Handel, Caldara, and others, then departing into free improvisation inspired by the great composers. He will discuss his process with the audience, sharing the special skills and unique perspective of the 18th century mind.
