D04 Classical guitar lesson 07

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Wed Mar 06, 2019 9:45 am

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D04.
If you are new to the course, please read this message to familiarize yourself with the conditions for participating in the lessons. You should also read the first message in lesson 1, where you will find advice on how to make the most of your study time and on the methods of practising that I recommend.




First we will study some technical exercises from volume D04.
- page 118 Delcamp, Jean-François Scale n°26



- page 130, 132 Delcamp, Jean-François Improvisation work - D04
These exercises in improvisation are to be done several times a week, for several months.
Vary the volume (mf, pp, ff, p ...), timbres and rhythms. Never play the same thing twice, because it would cease to be improvisation, and would become composition.

16/ Improvise a melody upon the harmonic sequence of Españoleta.


17/ Improvise arpeggios upon the harmonic sequence of Españoleta.


18/ Improvise in chords upon the harmonic sequence of Españoleta.


19/ play and ornament in the style of the period: Españoleta by Gaspar Sanz, page 16 (D03).


20/ make up and play your own divisions on: Españoleta by Gaspar Sanz, page 16 (D03).


Examples of divisions in my PDFs:
D02 pages 40, 41, 42: Ferdinando CARULLI (1770-1841) - VALSE VARIEE Opus 241
The variations are divisions on the valse.

D02 pages 52 and 53: Fernando SOR (1778-1839) - LEÇON VIII & IX opus 60
Leçon IX is a division on leçon VIII.

D03 page 6: Adrian LE ROY (ca. 1520-1598) - PREMIER BRANSLE DE POICTOU
Bars 26 to 48 are a division on bars 1 to 24.

D03 page 9: Guillaume MORLAYE (1510?-1558?) - GAILLARDE
Bars 9 to 16 are a division on bars 1 to 8.

D03 page 14: Francis CUTTING (ca. 1600) - PACKINGTON'S POUND
Bars 9 to 16 are a division on bars 1 to 8. Bars 25 to 32 are a division on bars 17 to 24. Bars 41 to 48 are a division on bars 33 to 40.

D03 page 17: Gaspar SANZ (ca. 1640-1710) - GALLARDA
The second section is a division on the first section.

D04 page 14: Guillaume MORLAYE (1510?-1558?) - GAILLARDE - de "Le second livre de chansons" Paris 1553
Bars 9 to 16 are a division on bars 1 to 8.

D04 page 20: Adrian LE ROY (ca. 1520-1598) - ALMANDE "la mon amy la"
Bars 5 to 8 are a division on bars 1 to 4. Bars 13 to 16 are a division on bars 9 to 12.

D04 page 24: ANONYME (1600) - THE SICK TUNE
Bars 5 to 8 are a division on bars 1 to 4. Bars 13 to 16 are a division on bars 9 to 12.

D05 page 30: Robert JOHNSON (1542-1603) - ALMAN VII
Bars 9 to 16 are a division on bars 1 to 8. Bars 25 to 32 are a division on bars 17 to 24.

D06 page 18: Adrian LE ROY (1520-1598) - PASSEMEZE
Bars 19 to 34 are a division on bars 3 to 18.

D06 page 66: Mauro GIULIANI (1781-1829) - SONATINE opus 71 N°1 - Maestoso
Bars 17 to 32 are a division on bars 1 to 16. Bars 33 to 48 are a division on bars 1 to 16. Bars 49 to 64 are a division on bars 1 to 16.




Finally, we'll look at 4 pieces.
- pages 36, 37 Bach, Johann Sebastian Menuets BWV 1008
This pair of minuets was composed for the cello. At this period musicians would add ornaments to the music when playing the repeats.



- page 44, 45 Carulli, Ferdinando Rondo opus 41 n°3
This rondo is based on contrasts:
forte - piano,
question - response
parallel movement (the different voices rise or fall together) - contrary movement (one voice rises while the other falls)
ascending melody - descending melody,
tension (dominant) - release (tonic)
long values (dotted quarter notes/crotchets) - short values (quarter notes/crotchets)
main key (C major, the tonic) – relative key (G major, the dominant)



- page 72, 73 Carcassi, Matteo Valse opus 23 n°9
this Valse is based on contrasts:
forte - piano,
question - response
parallel movement (the different voices rise or fall together) - contrary movement (one voice rises while the other falls)
ascending melody - descending melody,
tension (dominant) - release (tonic)
long motifs (several bars) - short motifs (one bar)
minor – major



- page 94, 95 Sagreras, Julio Salvador Maria Luisa, Mazurka opus 19
Here we have an accompanied melody. Bring out the melody from the accompaniment. Play the melody with a legato style. Play the accompaniment unobtrusively with a "non legato" or slightly staccato style.




I ask you first to work on all these exercises and pieces for one week and then to post your recordings on the forum for:
19/ play and ornament in the style of the period: Españoleta by Gaspar Sanz, page 16 (D03).
- page 72, 73 Carcassi, Matteo Valse opus 23 n°9
- page 94, 95 Sagreras, Julio Salvador Maria Luisa, Mazurka opus 19



Good luck!

I thank Geoff (GeoffB) who has helped in the translation of my lessons into English.

Jean-François

Lesson 7 is the first opportunity to post sufficient pieces to qualify for entering the exam.
At the end of the first post of each lesson you will see aa list of students and their posts which are registered as qualifying pieces.
Can you check your posts for each lesson and see if there are any I have missed.
thanks
Colin

Hi Colin,

Any chance you can weigh in on the D01 forum? It seems our moderator has gone missing.

Hi Bill
Any particular lesson where help needed?
Lesson 06 needs updating as does lesson 04 I believe ( Paul Cezanne), and perhaps the same notice you posted to the other lesson forums regarding the upcoming exam would be helpful as well for us first year students who are unfamiliar with the process.

Thanks.

Usually we update about twice a month until we are getting close to the exam when we start updating every week. I think John will be logging on tonight so we’ll see if he needs a hand
