Who We Are
Encounter of Santander
BACH, Johann Sebastian
Partita for violin solo no. 1 in B minor BWV 1002
Marco Rizzi, professor
Javier Comesaña Barrera, student
Professor Rizzi talks about the character of this movement and gives some indications to the student in order to clarify the rhythm, the counterpoint and the rubato.
When it comes to the character, it should be played with more continuity, enjoying, and more comfortable way, and not losing that intention throughout the movement.
When there is a change of rhythm, for example from dotted notes to others, the change should be done immediately, while the cue to the repetition is more delicate, trying the more adequate contact point of the bow. The student should be aware of the internal counterpoint of the melody because there are two voices. In the moment where rubato appears, it is necessary to keep the flow.
