Who We Are
Encounter of Santander
MOZART, Wolfgang Amadeus
Concerto for violin and orchestra no. 4 in D major K 218 (violin and piano reduction)
Gérard Poulet, guest professor
Lucas Bienzobas Sánchez, student
Duncan Gifford, accompanying pianist
For this masterclass, prof. Poulet suggests the student different fingering to improve the tuning in a certain passage. Afterwards, they focus on articulation and phrasing.
Gérard Poulet shows by playing some recommendations to the student. He continues with advices on tuning, finger position, expressivity, breathings and rapport with the piano.
Finally, they work on the cadence: it should be improvising but with a good tempo and balance, and they review the fingering for a certain difficult passage for the student.
