Bachiana brasileira no. 6 for flute and bassoon
I. Aria (Chôro)
Klaus Thunemann, professor
André Cebrián Garea, flute
Orsolya Juhasz, bassoon
At the beginning of the masterclass, Klaus Thunemann corrects the tempo (the students have played it too fast) as well as the flute articulation. Afterwards, the professor makes some indications about the convenience to breathe in a certain moment and about the accents on the bassoon. The duet must show the dancing and Latin character of this piece, and to achieve that Thunemann suggests a more suitable rhythm and articulation.
Besides, he makes other recommendations on expressiveness, dynamics, articulation and accents. He also corrects the fingering on the bassoon for the end of the piece.
Finally, prof. Thunemann proposes to play again the Aria taking into account that it is music “on the street”. They must wait in the first A and play with a full sound. If it is possible, flutist should play the first phrase in one breath, and then Thunemann makes some specific indications on tempo for both instruments.
