Encounter of Santander
Fantaisie brillante on themes from Gounod's Faust for violin and orchestra op. 20 (violin and piano reduction)
Natalia Prishepenko, guest professor
Sara Areal Martínez, student
Vadim Gladkov, accompanying pianist
After giving the student some recommendations about bow changes, professor Prishepenko works with her some issues, such as rest points in the piece, high notes in pianissimo, positive attitude and facial expression, suitable moments for making vibrato, and orchestral considerations. She also gives explanations on bow direction regarding the phrasing, tempo issues, different staccati in fast passages, and weight of the arm for double stops.
