古樂為何重要

於十六世紀伊始的「歐洲古樂」是近代與現代「西洋音樂」的發端根基,然歷經十八世紀末法國大革命與十九世紀初樂器變革與大眾音樂品味變化,歐洲古樂時髦不再,明珠收匣。幸賴大量歐洲演奏家與音樂史學者孜孜不懈的考古發掘,歐洲古樂在二十世紀初復興,得以重現絕代風華,成為當代歐陸古典音樂研究與普羅音樂品味中,重要不可或缺的類別。台灣歐洲古樂協會以推廣「歐洲古樂」為己任。

 

 協會願景

「台灣歐洲古樂協會 Taiwan Early Music Society」由旅歐多年的古樂家以及在台歆慕歐洲古樂的社會人士組成,於民國105年八月內政部立案,於該年十一月核准成立。希望透過音樂講座、古樂器示範、工作坊等體驗,延伸到戲劇、舞蹈等題材,以古樂演奏會、清唱劇表演等為最終目標,擴大台灣普羅群眾以德奧古典音樂為主流的音樂認知,培養更為多元的文化與藝術品味。

 

 

 Importance of Early Music

The Early Music revival began at the start of the 20th century, unearthing baroque repertoire which had been forgotten after the French Revolution. This re- discovery of the musical heritage from before 1800 prompted a burst of Early Music research in Europe, and the return of baroque music to the favor of classical music lovers.
