Lesson: Lesson #5Lesson0000085

  • The piece repeats itself few times. Essentially the notes are:
    • Page 1, with roughly two halves repeated
    • Page 2, with almost exactly two halves repeated
    • Page 3
    • Page 2, same two halves repeated
    • Page 1
    • Page 2, and yet again
  • If all repeats are played the same, the piece is b.o.r.i.n.g. So mix it up.
  • The pedal is your paint brush, dabbling different colour on the canvas. Or something like that. If you are a bit confused and want a paint-by-number, try this:
    • Page 1. Pedal up on the 2nd beat. Could play more mazurka-ish.
    • Page 2. Short pedal, play more gutsy.
    • Page 3. Lots of pedal. Be strong. Let the melody shine.
    • Page 4 (Page 2). Be original
    • Page 5 (Page 1). Even less pedal than originally.
    • Page 6 (Page 2). Longer pedal, with soft pedal on.
  • In all cases, be clean. We want to hear the rests (eg Bar 3, the 16th rest).

{{#vardefine:parm1| Score0000098 }}{{#vardefine:parm2| title }}Score0000098 Had a quick introduction to the piece. If you want to start trying it, be wary of:

  • Andante must refer to the whole and half notes. Because the inside-voice triples or 6s are fast.
  • The voices are critical. The middle voice should be even and soft. The top voice should ring. The bottom voice supports the piece, being sometimes pp and other times ff.
  • The multitude of flats is not terribly difficult - just flatten all notes except F. Except where there are naturals floating around. And a few Fs. And double flats too. Hmmmm....
  • The wacky time signature makes for very long bars. The inside voice has 24 notes per bar. At 14 bars per page on 6 pages, that's over 2000 notes. If you are 95% accurate, you will hit 100 wrong notes. What are you doing to us, Franz Schubert?

  • {{#vardefine:parm1| Score0000098 }}{{#vardefine:parm2| inline }}Score0000098. We heard it, and we'll cover it shortly. Note: I recently modified the PDF, so now the important stuff is centered on each page. Why? You can now print without scaling things, as the notes won't fall off the page.
