Rare Music /Early Music

Reproduction~Some Thoughts on Recreating the Music of Bygone Ages, featuring luthier John Pringle

Pringle will discuss the knotty question of “authenticity” in the performance of what has come to be called Early Music, with special reference to the instruments as tools.  Pringle has spent the last thirty years helping to recreate the sounds of music from past times by building stringed instruments based on historical models from the 12th to the 18th centuries.  Co-sponsored by the Duke University Libraries and the Duke University Musical Instrument Collections. Friday, 14 November, 4:00pm, Perkins Library, Biddle Rare Rook Room
