This is the edited video of the 8th interview of the series «A Coffee With…». On this occasion my guest was the American musicologist & cornetto player Bruce Dickey. The original “Coffee with…» took place on Thursday June 25th 2020 on my Facebook wall. It was simultaneously transmitted on Music Without Quarantine.

Bruce Dickey has been living in Italy for over 40 years now. He was born in Indiana in 1949. He has worked with numerous renowned musicians, ensembles, orchestras and conductors. He is the founder of Concerto Palatino and The Breathtaking Collective along with the soprano Hana Blažíková. He also plays with the Artemisia Consort founded by his wife and long life companion, the mezzo-soprano Candace Smith.

On this video, we speak about the early years of Bruce Dickey as a student and how he started playing music, first as a cornett player, then as a trumpeter, a recorder player and, finally, as one of the greatest cornetto players in the world. Bruce Dickey was teaching at Schola Cantorum Basiliensis for 40 years. We also speak about some of his projects: On the breath of angels, Nature’s secret whispering (music in the times of Johannes Kepler) or the LAMP Renassaince Academies (a teaching project at the Lunenburg Academy of Music Performance in Nova Scotia, Canada). If you wish to check Bruce’s extensive discography, please visit his web page: Bruce Dickey’s Discography.
