Janne Saksala: Bottesini - Introduction and gavotta (double bass part)

BOTTESINI, Giovanni

Introduction and gavotta for double bass and piano (double bass part)

 

Janne Saksala, guest professor

Jimena Rodríguez San Miguel, student

 

At the beginning, Saksala suggests the double bass to wait to start until its first cue, so there is time enough for the accompanying piano to fade out. In some moments it is necessary to take more time to express more fantasy (this idea comes out in many moments of the class).

The Professor works in depth on the phrasing, the most important notes to be highlighted, the moment to breath to express more and the use of vibrato in certain passages.
