Wies De Boevé: Mendelssohn - Lied ohne Worte op 109

MENDELSSOHN, Felix

Lied ohne Worte for cello and piano in D major op. 109 (arrangement for double bass and piano)

 

Wies De Boevé, guest professor

Jorge Toledo Rodríguez, student

Jesús Gómez Madrigal, accompanying pianist

 

The professor mentions some aspects related to phrasing, dynamics, articulation in legato, etc.
Bow changes should be prepared before in a relaxed way and without strong breathing stops to avoid sound interruptions. The character has to be appassionato and, in a certain passage, it is advisable the use of a different string to get better sound. He also makes some comments about fingerings, tuning and bow direction, distribution, speed, and quantity.
Finally, the professor works on shifts in detail, giving some advices and indications for a better practice.
