Pierre Bohr
Saturday 19 may 2012 / 14h-16h
Lecture: The baryton .
attention: this lecture will be given in French !
The baryton is an instrument essentially known by the music of Haydn, but in fact, it accompanies musical history for almost two centuries.
After an introduction on its origin and development, the principal characteristics of the baryton will be explained and the evolution of its form and its construction methods will be retraced using photographs and measurements taken on twenty of the forty surviving instruments.

Pierre Bohr, instrument maker since 25 years, has always been interested in different techniques and traditions in lutherie. His work is based on the observation of surviving instruments, experiments and the exchange of experiences musicians, musicologists and instrument makers. Pierre Bohr lives and works in Milan, Italy
