Texte et présentation Powerpoint sur le contrepoint chez Machaut.

Le mois dernier, j’étais invitée par Pierre Hamon au Conservatoire National Supérieur Musique et Danse de Lyon à entendre certains des étudiants qui travaillent sur des chansons de Guillaume de Machaut. Beaucoup de mes commentaires sur les performances étaient sur la question de musica ficta. Pour cette raison, j’ai donné aussi une courte présentation sur le contrepoint, que j’ai promis d’ajouter a mon blog pour les étudiants du CNSMD (et qui que ce soit intéressé dans une explication de contrepoint chez Machaut en français).
