William Bennett: Feld - Flute sonata - III. Allegro vivace

FELD, Jindrich

Sonata for flute and piano

III. Allegro vivace

 

William Bennett, guest professor

Neus Puig Valls, student

Cameron Roberts, accompanying pianist

 

Prof. Bennett starts the masterclass with tempo indications at the beginning of the movement.
Basically, the fast rhythms at the first part and the rapport with the piano are the issues that need more hard work due to their difficulty. Besides, William Bennet corrects the posture of the student and he makes also a comment on the character for the slow section: it reminds a saxophone melody, like a blues with Hungarian character and therefore it should be played by showing these harmonies, rhythms, colors and agogics which are typical of Hungarian music.
The professor makes also reference to popular music from Wallachia, region of Romania, and finally he proposes a certain fingering to get a timbre and sound more similar to the saxophone.
