Historical Clarinet


29 and 30 July



This ‘masterclass’ is aimed at historic clarinet players. The musician Lorenzo Coppola — professor of historical clarinet at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya — will lead the classes that will culminate in a concert on Sunday, July 30 at 8 p.m. in the cloister of the Royal Colleges of Tortosa. Students will be admitted through curriculum selection.


Lorenzo Coppola studied historical clarinet with Eric Hoeprich at The Hague Royal Conservatory.

He has worked with groups specialized in playing historical instruments such as the Freiburger Barockorchester, Les Arts Florissants, La Petite Bande, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and the La Grande Écurie et la Chambre du Roy ensemble.

Lorenzo has shared his love for chamber music playing with musicians and groups like Andreas Staier, Isabelle Faust, Alexander Melnikov, Hidemi Suzuki, the Kuijken Quartet, the Ensemble Zefiro and Quatuor Terpsycordes.

Together with the pianist Cristina Esclapez, he founded the Ensemble Dialoghi in Barcelona with historical instruments in 2014. Four years later, in 2018, with Harmonia Mundi he released his first CD playing quintets by Mozart and Beethoven for wind instruments and pianoforte.

He has been teaching historical clarinet at the Catalan Higher School of Music (ESMUC) in Barcelona since 2004. He specializes in the study of relationships between music and audiences and the communication of emotions and messages through music.
