Question: Smetana Overture

February 11, 2017

From Guilherme:

Prof. Marcos, how do you play the excerpt Smetana "Overture to the bartered bride" ? Do you have any exercise that can be applied to that excerpt ?

Dear Guilherme,
Thank you for your question. I just finished my practice session and looked at the Smetana. For that excerpt, I would use a few pivots. Also, there are many other fingerings for this passage. To develop facility with the pivot technique, chapter 2 provides a wealth of exercises. For this particular passage, I would recommend exercises 2.3 b to 2.3e.

Please forgive me by using solo tuning. I have a series of recitals and concerts coming up.
I hope this helps,
