Drei Romanzen for violin and piano op. 22 (version for oboe and piano)
2. Allegretto. Mit zartem Vortrage
Hansjörg Schellenberger, professor
Juan Manuel García-Cano, student
Alina Artemyeva, accompanying pianist
In this masterclass Schellenberger points out the Norwegian character of this Romanza. It remembers him Grieg’s music (like trolls in a forest). About the student’s performance, the professor indicates that he doesn’t play the “pizzicato arpeggio” at the end. He also mentions that the character in certain moment must be more tender, without pressing so much, and he shows it by playing this part. The performance must be lighter in tempo but relaxed, scherzando and fluid.
Afterwards, Schellenberger makes some comments on agogics and tempo changes, proper articulation regarding the right hand in the piano, preparation in the harmonic change, dynamics, and so on.
