William Bennett: Saint-Saëns - Le carnaval des animaux (flute part) - Volières

SAINT-SAËNS, Camille

Le carnaval des animaux for 11 instruments (flute part)

10. Volières

 

William Bennett, guest professor

Irena Kavcic, student

 

Prof. Bennet begins the lecture making some corrections on phrasing and appoggiaturas with trills for this orchestral excerpt: it should imitate loads of little birds fluttering. To obtain this character, William Bennet corrects also the articulation and he suggests that the sound at the end of a certain phrase should not stop so sharply but should end with more reverberation.
Finally, he mentions other improvable aspects related to the repeating notes and the phrasing.
