Minuets from String quartets by Boccherini, Haydn, Mozart, Brahms & Mendelssohn
Oliver Wille, guest professor
For this masterclass with all the students of the String Quartets Chair, Wille explains different issues related to String quartet's Minuets. He proposes a game: each Quartet will play a Minuet. He will ask them about this and then they will talk about the special characteristics for each one. They play and talk about the next examples:
Minuetto from Quintet in E major op. 11 no. 5 G 275 by Boccherini.
Minuet "in pizzicato" from Le nozze di Figaro by Mozart.
