Modernizing European Higher Music Education Through Improvisation

Series 3; Part 2; Exercise 4 - Injecting freedom and personal voice into structure step 8

David Dolan |Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London

The 2nd violinist and the singer in vocal dialogue, while the three other string players perform instrumentally. Beethoven’s structure is kept while the singer & 2nd violinist dialogue freely within it. Note the enhanced expressive power and enjoyment despite the augmented risk, and the spontaneous feedback & reflection that follows.
