Adagio and Allegro for horn and piano in A flat major op. 70 (transcription for viola and piano)
Antoine Tamestit, guest professor
Guillermo Gil García, student
Juan Barahona, accompanying pianist
Referring to the cue of the Allegro, with the indication 'Feuerig', the student should play it with more 'fire'. The surprise effect is very important to create more expectation to the audience, without showing so much preparation. The first articulation is spiccato, but simulating a horn sound and attack. The tempo is more strict, and not slowing down.
In general, all the transition passages must be studied in detail.
Sumarizing, the piece requieres more character to show the contrasts and differences written by the composer.
At the end, Professor Tamestit gives advices related to relaxing shoulders and neck.
