Concerto for violin and orchestra no. 4 in D major K 218 (violin and piano reduction)

First proposal from prof. Poulet about Rondo of the Violin Concerto no. 4 by Mozart consists in playing a little cadence in a certain moment.
Then he corrects the articulation: it must be staccatissimo (with a “lacrima”), and Poulet makes also other corrections relating to phrasing and bowing. The professor shows it always by playing and he recommends the student to use the score edited by Joachim because it is “near” to Mozart.
He continues with suggestions on tempo and agogics, articulations, to play “ma non troppo” and on the beat, etc. Besides, Prof. Poulet corrects the use of the bow in the double stops part to get the right tuning.
The masterclass ends with some indications on phrasing, vibrato in a certain note, and playing the final part with the orchestra more forte and energetic.
