Eduard Brunner: Poulenc - Sonata for two clarinets FP 7 - I. Presto

POULENC, Francis

Sonata for two clarinets FP 7

I. Presto

 

Eduard Brunner, guest professor

Ana María Carvalho, student
Carlos Pastor Vidal, student

 

This masterclass starts with some general comments on the story and style of the composition, and then the professor makes references to Prokofiev and The Rite of Spring by Stravinsky.
About this specific first movement, they mainly work on fingerings to get the required articulations, and cues to play them together. Character should be more elegant, and articulation more accurate. They also work on the rhythmical precision, rapport, rubato, tempo, clarity, agogics, accents and articulations.
