Bach G Minor Adagio -- Getting to the heart of the music

November 10, 2013 07:00

This is the newest video in my series on how to approach the Bach Sonatas and partitas.

Topics include:
1. Shaping the small phrases -- the improvisatory style.
2. Practicing the melody alone — finding the natural melodic expressivity
3. Practicing with a metronome -- developing grace and comfort within the rhythmic framework
4. Some aspects of chord playing -- melodic connections and tone quality
5. Experimenting with moods
