Antoine Tamestit: Schumann - Adagio and Allegro op 70 - I. Adagio

SCHUMANN, Robert

Adagio and Allegro for horn and piano in A flat major op. 70 (transcription for viola and piano)

I. Adagio

 

Antoine Tamestit, guest professor

Guillermo Gil García, student

Juan Barahona, accompanying pianist

 

At the beginning, Professor Tamestit comments aspects of sound and posture with the instrument. This is an original piece for horn, so the first phrase is in one breathing, that does not require frequent bow changes. The posture of the body should be as skiing, suspended, and keeping the viola up but relaxed, without getting blocked. Tamestit suggests the student to start up-bow and corrects some aspects related to the movement of the arm and the contact with the strings.
