I. Allegro

Vadim Gladkov, accompanying pianist

 

Professor Natalia Prishepenko remarks the importance of the piano part, which is necessary to be kept in mind. Although the musicians play by heart, it is important that they have the score with them to feel how Chamber Music is "made" and to be aware of the other parts.
Some indications on the violin's particella and the general score.
The professor explains the weight that must be given to the first notes at the beginning and the right position in relation to the piano for chamber music performance. The student has to focus on phrasing, emphasising the drama, the bridge as the place to project the sound, and the bowings at the end of the movement.
