Sonata for arpeggione and piano en A minor D 821 'Arpeggionne' (version for double bass and piano)
I. Allegro moderato
Wies De Boevé, guest professor
Javier Serrano Santaella, student
Jesús Gómez Madrigal, accompanying pianist
The general idea after the student's performance is to play more fluent -the flow always goes ahead- and the professor advises him to always follow the original manuscript. Wies De Boevé gives indications about phrasing and articulation, about string crossing and shifting, and corrects the bow inclination –with a more circular movement of the arm.
Other corrections are dynamics, pitch duration, character, agogics, ornamentation, contact point with the string, and softer pizziccati –round position of the fingers. Moreover, prof. De Boevé proposes the student to work on the bass register and points out the harmony that contributes to create a character of 'dramatic surprise' in a certain passage.
