16 Valsas para fagote solo
16. Aquela modinha que o Villa não escreveu
Klaus Thunemann, professor
Sára Rebeka Tóth, student
Professor Thunemann asks the student to play the complete phrase in one breath. He also checks the quality of the sound for A flat. Afterwards she should play staccato, not rubato. Prof. Thunemann gives her some advices about the position of the embouchure when playing: she should take down her head a little more.
Thunemann also makes comments about the ternary rhythm of the waltz, it has to be danceable. In this case it has a sad character. He continues reviewing the articulation and breathing. To conclude, he asks the student to think about this waltz dance, including the harmonies that would sound (he shows it playing it on the piano).
