Zoltán Kocsis: Brahms - Piano sonata no. 2 op 2 - IV. Finale

BRAHMS, Johannes

Sonata for piano no. 2 in F sharp minor op. 2

IV. Finale. Introduzione: Sostenuto - Allegro non troppo e rubato

 

Zoltán Kocsis, guest professor

Ji Liu, student

 

The lecture by Kocsis begins with a general valuation of the performance. The main task for the student consists on convincing the audience that it is a masterpiece.
About this specific movement, the professor corrects a particular rhythm: it is not a triplet.
This Finale should be more active and vivo. Then Kocsis clarifies some questions to the student and insists on the importance of convincing with the form, specially in the last chords.
