Introduction and rondo capriccioso for solo violin and orchestra in A minor op. 28 (violin and piano reduction)
Christoph Poppen, guest professor
Inés Issel Burzyñska, student
Vadim Gladkov, accompanying pianist
Professor Poppen begins with a brief comment about tuning on the stage. After the performance, he gives the student some advice on the position of her left shoulder, the playing stance and the tension/relaxation in the left hand.
Afterwards, Christoph Poppen makes some indications about the 'capriccioso' character and the expressiveness of the piece; as well as about the vibrato, the sound and the dynamics, among others. He also makes some comments about bow direction, syncopation and accents, bow-strokes, pressure in the strings, pauses, articulations and fingers.
