Chamber Strings I

Chamber Strings I: Week #4

Ginger Dolden


We reviewed dynamics in the exposition and ran through the development.  

Intonation in development

The development changes keys constantly - this section in classical music is always meant to create instability - unfinished melodies, key changes, non-sensical transitions. Subsequently, it’s often the hardest section to play in a sonata-form movement.  Work on run-throughs and intonation especially this week.  Use a metronome so you don’t slow down.
