At 4 pm: Con soavi accenti, a lecture with Sven Schwannberger on the links between the use of the voice and vocal maniera in the 17th century.
Sven Schwannberger studied in Munich, Kassel and at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. As recorder player, flautist and lutenist he recorded many CDs featuring 17th- and 18th-century music. His international concert career is both complemented and inspired by his ever-increasing musicological work and teaching activities; his PhD is a basic work on early baroque maniera and voice. He teaches improvisation, ornamentation, and historical performance practice at the Schola Cantorum Basilensis.
