Contrapunt, punt voor punt

Zomercursus Davidsfonds Academie

Polyphonic music enchants us with its intertwining melodies, known as counterpoint. How did composers in the Middle Ages and Renaissance manage to create such refined fabrics of sound? In these lectures, you will unravel the secrets of the complex counterpoint technique step by step – or rather, point by point. What are the rules and how did they change over the centuries? Is there still counterpoint in music today?
